Introducing Synapse Tables (beta)

The Synapse Team is proud to announce a new beta feature called Tables. Synapse Tables have been designed to provide users the ability to create web-accessible, sharable, and queryable data. Columns in Synapse Tables have a user-specified structured schema which provides many of the benefits of a database, but without the overhead of maintaining one.

Table functionality is available with the most release of both of our analytical clients as well (R Client version 1.5-4 and Python Client version 1.2). For an overview of the Tables feature, see our Getting Started Guide.

Please try Tables and feel free to give feedback either via our issue tracking system or at

About Brian Bot
I am a Principal Scientist working in Computational Oncology at Sage Bionetworks in Seattle, Washington and Community Manager for our technology platforms. Previously, I worked in the Department of Biomedical Statistics and Informatics at the Mayo Clinic for 7 years. This work included 7 years of dealing with cancer clinical trial data as part of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center (MCCC). I have extensive experience in working with clinical and genomic data and have a passion for exploring innovative ways to make science more open and transparent. My current work involves both doing innovative research in computational oncology as well as serving as a bridge between biomedical researchers and technology development. At its heart, this work is driven to re-envision how scientists can ensure reproducibility of their research results and communicate complex science to one another and to the public at large. I have been an invited speaker at a number of national and international events to share my experiences living at the intersection of biomedical research and technology.
