One thing no one likes to face is opening the closets. Not necessarily the physical closets, even though there are quite a few of them packed with document folders in every lab as well. There are loads of files that have to be kept in a physical and/or digital format to meet the recordkeeping requirements. Data that is never used and questionably organized.
BLOG FOR RESEARCHERS WHO WANT TO GO DIGITAL
Technology adoption should start early in the education process. The use of electronic lab notebooks for managing data, organizing work, writing reports and better collaboration can easily begin in high school and continue all the way through university and further career. Science is going digital, just like all other aspects of our lives and young generations will need to learn how to cope with growing amounts of digital data.
Which are the main advantages of Electronic Lab Notebooks (ELNs)? Is your research data safe in the cloud? When is the Internet of Things coming to the laboratories? If you would like to get answers to these questions, we recommend you to listen to the ELNs under the Spotlight Webinar with Klemen Zupancic, PhD, CEO sciNote LLC and Jana Erjavec, PhD, Product Manager sciNote LLC.
Today, we are having a brain-teasing discussion with Klemen Zupancic, CEO sciNote LLC, PhD Biomedicine.
We live in the age of artificial intelligence, internet of things, machine learning and exponential rise of new technologies. Today’s software could generate our photos from our genetic code, determine our age, sex and height from our voice, recognize the syndromes from our portraits, enable us to feel through bionic limbs, walk through the virtual reality labs and much more… while at the same time, we still write our notes on paper.
sciNote encourages scientific ingenuity, exploration and new ideas, which is why we were excited to support iGEM 2016, the premiere student team competition in Synthetic Biology. At iGEM we met the team focused on the issues we are also passionate about, the big data challenge and the potential of using DNA for data storage.
If you are working in the lab you would probably relate to the fact that new ideas and especially ideas about the use of new digital solutions in the lab can be a bit of an obstacle to be accepted by the rest of the team and the PI.
Today, we are having a conversation with Jana Erjavec, PhD about handling the situations when your ideas get stuck.
We are inviting you to join a webinar Electronic Lab Notebooks Under the Spotlight where sciNote’s CEO Klemen Zupancic will dedicate special attention to answer your questions about electronic lab notebooks (ELNs).
Let’s plant the digital forest!
What is this all about?
There is an ongoing debate about whether saving paper has anything to do with saving trees and whether the rise of digital technology is better or worse for the environment.
In this article we will tackle major concerns regarding the use of digital, cloud-based, online lab notebooks and similar software solutions.
