    34       are concluded. Until the overview is written there is only three
    35       pointers here; i) Early in your BASE experience you should get
    36       acquainted with the permission and projects system
    37       (<xref linkend="project_permission" />) since this will be
    38       helpful when you get going, ii) see <xref linkend="resources" />
    39       for further BASE information resources, and iii) read this
    40       document.
     35      BASE is a freely available software solution designed for
     36      laboratories looking for a single point of storage for all
     37      information related to their experimentation and for storing,
     38      managing, and analysing genomics/transcriptomics data. BASE
     39      offers a multi-user local data repository featuring a web
     40      browser user interface, laboratory information management system
     41      (LIMS) for biomaterials and array production, annotations such
     42      as clinical information, hierarchical overview of analysis, and
     43      integrates tools like <ulink
