1. Before you begin
Before you begin your analysis, we recommend you plan out what analyses you want to produce, in line with the UniApp workflow below.
Before any data exploration or analysis takes place, outline the question you want to answer.
Identify what projects you need to answer this question.
Identify what tracks you need in each project to fulfill the aim of that project.
Select the algorithms you want to use and run them on your data.
Plot the output of your analyses by arranging tracks and projects in a meaningful way. This will allow you to tell a story and answers the question you defined at the beginning of your workflow.
Publish your analysis, having answered the question you set out to investigate.
