Demonstration of the Open Science Framework (OSF) Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN)
A demonstration of Open Science Framework's (OSF) Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN). OSF's application is a free, open-source web tool designed to help researchers track, manage, store, and if they choose, share their entire research workflow.
A wide range of resources for perspective electronic lab notebook (ELN) users can be found on the Gurdon Institute website at https://www.gurdon.cam.ac.uk/institute-life/computing/elnguidance. The site includes:
- What is an Electronic Lab Notebook, and why should I use one?
- A note about DIY documentation systems
- Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) vs Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS)
- Disengagement - what if I want to change systems?
- Which ELN would be best for me/my group?
- Evaluating the product
- Some current ELN products (suitability, platform, storage, and other details)

Transform and visualize data in R using the packages tidyr, dplyr and ggplot2: An EDI VTC Tutorial.
The two tutorials, presented by Susanne Grossman-Clarke, demonstrate how to tidy data in R with the package “tidyr” and transform data using the package “dplyr”. The goal of those data transformations is to support data visualization with the package “ggplot2” for data analysis and scientific publications of which examples were shown.
