caMOD 2.4 released

Just got an announcement about a new release of the caMOD Cancer Models database. This web-based resource holds information about mouse, rat, and other animal models relating to cancer research. It is also integrated with many other useful data resources.

From their description:

Retrieve information about the making of models, their genetic description, histopathology, derived cell lines, associated images, carcinogenic agents, and therapeutic trials. Links to associated publications and other resources are provided.

If you are a researcher in this field you can also submit this type of information.

The new features in this release are:

  • The integration of caMOD with caELMIR
  • Object model changes as result of the VCDE review
  • Compliance with NCICB Technology Stack Requirements

caELMIR is a data management system for pre-clinical experimental data. It is a LIMS, or more specifically an ELIMS, for Electronic Laboratory Information Management System. This is beyond the scope of our current resource coverage, but some people finding this blog might find it useful.
