LabKey Server

Short Name: 
LabKey Server

LabKey Server is open source software that helps scientists organize, analyze, and share biomedical research data.

LabKey Server provides a secure data repository for all types of biomedical data, including mass spectrometry, flow cytometry, microarray, microplate, ELISpot, ELISA, NAb and observational study information. A customizable data processing pipeline allows the upload and processing of the large data files common in biomedical research.
The platform also provides domain-specific support for several areas of research, including:
Observational Studies. Supports management of longitudinal, large-scale studies of participants, subjects or animals over time. Allows the integration of clinical data with assay results.
Proteomics. Allows the processing of high-throughput mass spectrometry data using tools such as the X! Tandem search engine, the Trans-Proteomic Pipeline, Mascot and Sequest. Certified as "Silver-Level Compliant Data Service" with the caBIG standard.
Flow Cytometry. Supports automated quality control, centralized data management and web-based data sharing. Integrates with FlowJo.

Custom Development is offered at the official website.; LabKey has been built under contract with FHCRC, NCI, The Canary Foundation, Duke University, NAID, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Immune Tollerance Network, the University of Washington, and others. In most cases funding agencies sponsor investigators using ordinary granting mechanisms, and the investigators contract with LabKey Corporation to extend the software to meet their lab's needs. Most extensions are then bundled into the core distribution and relicensed for free with source code back to the community.
