APPLICATIONS OF TECHNOLOGY:
- Biological experiment data storage, sharing, and visualization
- Provides a novel and convenient way to store a variety of data types, visualize these data, and export them in a standardized fashion for use with predictive algorithms
Researchers at Berkeley Lab have developed the Experiment Data Depot (EDD), a web-based service for storing and visualizing data collected in biological experiments, including measurements, protocols, and metadata. EDD provides a novel way to keep all actionable data from an experiment in a single place, where this data can be conveniently browsed and quality checked. EDD hosts different types of data (proteomics, metabolomics, HPLC, etc.) so as to provide actionable information. EDD output is standardized into different output types that can be immediately used for modeling the systems.
EDD provides a standardized description of experiments and significantly facilitates the Test and Learn phases in the Design-Build-Test-Learn (DBTL) cycle. Its output types can be immediately used for modeling systems and it interacts easily with other services such as JBEI’s ICE (the Inventory of Composable Elements) and Arrowland (multiomics visualization tool).
