“The most interesting feature of eCAT is its flexibility.”

About the Shtutman lab

“My lab is doing functional genomics projects.   Our work involves many parallel projects with high throughput sequencing, analysis of results as well as wet biology assays.  In parallel, as the director of the functional genomics facility, we provide services for other labs.


We run many different projects involving different people, so it was difficult to combine all the results together, and to trace the materials that appear as a result of the research projects.


We have project related-databases as well as materials-related databases.  eCAT allows us to enter all the project information and the materials information and location.


With eCAT we were able to organize all our projects and materials, and create an integrated and searchable database of our work.

The most interesting feature of eCAT is its flexibility.  It allows us to add our own classes, and to add information in the manner most convenient for us.  The other features, including powerful search and the ability to add graphic data, are also advantageous.”
