Just a very brief note, which really follows on from the vigorous discussion in Jennifer Rohn’s blog at Nature Networks this week, to say that the guys at OpenWetWare appear to have gone live with some of the new functionality for laboratory notebooks on the wiki. Check it out from the OWW main page. I will have a closer look and make some comments as and when I have a bit of time but it looks like a good start.


  • If you’d like to see an example of the new lab notebook in action, you can take a look at
    Dileep Monie’s notebook
    .

    Also, the iGEM teams will be coming online in the coming months and using it pretty heavily, so should be a nice test. Here’s the harvard team’s notebook from awhile back, using our old calendering tool.

  • There’s a screencast demonstrating how to set up your lab notebook. Another one demonstrating how to use it is coming up shortly!

  • Do you know if this will become the official lab notebook completely replacing paper?

  • I think quite a few of the people involved in OWW are already using completely electronic notebooks. I’m not sure that any of the ‘real’ lab books are completely open though.
