Hivebench Electronic Lab Notebook

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

The time it takes to prepare, analyze and share experimental results can seem prohibitive, especially in the current, highly competitive world of biological research. However, not only is data sharing mandated by certain funding and governmental bodies, it also has distinct advantages for research quality and impact. Good laboratory practices recommend that all researchers use electronic lab notebooks (ELN) to save their results. This resource includes numerous short video demonstrations of Hivebench:
