Wythe Lab Databases
We have invested significant resources to develop open-source laboratory information management systems with molecular biologists in mind. These relational databases are constructed using the FileMaker Pro Advanced application, which can be downloaded for a free month long trial at https://www.filemaker.com/support/downloads/ . Below you will find empty databases ready for data entry. Check back often, as we will be adding them as we finish manuscripts describing their development and use. Future releases will deal with plasmids, oligos, antibodies, and mouse colonies. Our first offering is FishNET, which we are planning to deposit to Biorxiv soon.
FishNET is an intutive, open source, relational database for zebrafish colony management. This FileMaker database requires no coding knowledge, has an intuitive user interface and features automated data entry, bar-coded unique IDs for tanks and fry, a virtual fish facility, pedigree information, as well as a calendar function with automated email reminders for line turnover or setting up crosses.
