Findings from University of Lyon in the Area of Yeast Research Described

June 24, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators publish new report on Life Science Research. According to news reporting originating from Lyon, France, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Laboratory stocks are the hardware of research. They must be stored and managed with mimimum loss of material and information."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the University of Lyon, "Plasmids, oligonucleotides and strains are regularly exchanged between collaborators within and between laboratories. Managing and sharing information about every item is crucial for retrieval of reagents, for planning experiments and for reproducing past experimental results. We have developed a web-based application to manage stocks commonly used in a molecular biology laboratory. Its functionalities include user-defined privileges, visualization of plasmid maps directly from their sequence and the capacity to search items from fields of annotation or directly from a query sequence using BLAST. It is designed to handle records of plasmids, oligonucleotides, yeast strains, antibodies, pipettes and notebooks. Based on PHP/MySQL, it can easily be extended to handle other types of stocks and it can be installed on any server architecture."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "MyLabStocks is freely available from: under an open source licence."
