SANBI kicks off Bika Open Source Biobank customisations
The South African National Bioinformatics Institute is partnering Bika Lab Systems in customising an Open Source Bika LIMS branch for genomic lab disciplines and biobanking, including the management of sample and data distribution. The current Bika branch for health care laboratories, Bika Health 3.1, which already fulfils clinical subject requirements, is the starting point for this venture
Bika Roadmap 2014 II. Wish list
We were approached last week by a development team asking for technical assistance with functions they have been coding on for a number of weeks - an 80% match to what we have started on for bioinformatics now. We hope to see their code released but it looks very much like we'd be following a different, and given the difference in Bika experience, more sustainable route. - Home of Bika Lab Systems, implementers of web based open source LIMS, Plone hosting and content management systems   Powered by Plone, the open source content management system.
