Week 1 – Katie

Since we're still working on finding a way to host our data in a way that enables us all to have access to it but not provide any means of accidental data leaks, I spent my week developing an XML parser. As it currently stands, the program I have written will read in an XML file with a de-identified medical record in it, find the tags within the file, and separate them.

I'm working to automate the process and make it more robust to fit the needs of the whole dataset as well.

I also re-took parts of the CITI certification course to gain more knowledge on research ethics specifically related to our project.
