One of the most common search terms that brings people to our site is colony management software, or some variation thereof. We’ve talked about some of the choices in the past: Animal Colony Management Software.
We subsequently see a lot of interest in the free software from The Jackson Lab called JCMS as people click through. So I just wanted to offer as a public service an announcement of a webinar from the Jax folks on Colony Management and Breeding Strategies this week. In the email announcement I saw that it specifically includes a special item:
- Special bonus: A tutorial on the JAX Colony Management Software (JCMS) by its creator, Chuck Donnely. JCMS is free to download and use
So if this is an area of interest for you, it might be worth checking out. If you see this at a later time you might want to see if they offer the recordings later as well–I don’t know if they have them, but if you are evaluating this sort of software it might be useful.
