Data management and analysis

  • Data curves with problems such as contamination or bad data quality such as shaky curves can be flagged as use_data=no, so the data will not be used in large scale data retrieval and analysis. This can be done for an individual well or a whole plate.

  • The batch analysis feature of the DB_interface software allows users to define parameters, such as the reference well and a cutoff for the growth time, and apply these parameters to a list of growth plate files without having to open each individual growth file. Growth metrics are automatically recalculated using the new parameters and uploaded to the DB without further user intervention.
