Collaboration Enhancement Tools
"Making collaboration efficient and organized."
A web presence for your lab,
customized just for your research.
Modern research projects involve contributing efforts from many researchers, often located large distances apart. Technologies such as email and video conferencing enable near instantaneous communication and data sharing, however, they can often lead to multiple sources and mediums for your project data. Your paper notebooks, emails, files on your workstation, files on your laptop, and more! It can be hard to organize your notes when they are spread throughout such a disparate set of sources.
Bio::Neos can help. Utilizing the popular content management system Drupal, we can build a customized solution for you that is both easy to use and flexible enough to store all of your project related data in one internet accessible location! With just a simple web browser and no advanced knowledge of
programming, you can make WYSIWYG rich-text changes to your content to keep your collaborators updated on the progress of your project. Use the forum to keep a writing log of your discussions, keep a calendar of important events for your project, and get email updates as your collaborators upload new project data. And with our extensive software development experience, Bio:Neos can build modules to perform data analysis, specialized data management, data querying, and more!
Essentially, we will build a website for your project with several standard features designed with scientific research in mind. In addition, we are able to create custom modules for you to extend your solution to be even more powerful. The standard features are listed below, along with some examples of types of custom modules that we could build for your project.
