Scientiﬁc experiment Methods: A cascaded query model is proposed to resolve internal time-event dependencies in the queries which can have up to ﬁve levels of criteria starting with a query to deﬁne subjects to be admitted into a study, followed by a query to deﬁne the time span of the experiment. Three more cascaded queries can be required to deﬁne control groups, control variables and output variables which all together simulate a real scientiﬁc experiment. According to the complexity of
