Michigan Data Interface (MDI)

A platform for developing and sharing data analysis tools


The Michigan Data Interface (MDI) is a standardized framework for developing, installing and running HPC data analysis pipelines and interactive R Shiny visualization applications.

Dr. Wilson is the lead developer of the MDI and seeks to use it as a platform for training UM researchers in best data management and analysis practices, including (but not limited to) running an Undergraduate Research Opportunity Project (UROP) in which students are helping to develop the MDI’s tools.
