Support by Ontologies

NMR instruments are already provided in nmr CV, along with instruments parts.

Data Sanitisation and Missing Values

Instrument names are found only in MTBLS and MW.

Both repositories have a dedicated field for the instrument name, making it easily obtainable. However, none used ontology terms. As a result, one can see in the graph of the percentages of studies using the same instruments how small and plenty the sections are due to variations in the names used to indicate the same instrument. One can easily tell that Bruker and Agilent are the most used instruments, but getting exact numbers on how much a specific instrument is used was quite difficult.

A rough estimate of the percentages of all studies in the two repositories based on the NMR instrument

Looking at the distribution of instrument names in the two repositories, one can see that the same value (except for once) was never used in both, although the same instrument actually was.
