At any time with the pertinent authorizations it is possible to do an overturned specific of a part of the database, crossing information of cases or variables of diverse projects.
In the current moment the system has more than 25.000 cases and near 90.000 information of scales. Of all these cases in 10.000 subjects one possesses also information of the bank of DNA.
