Labnodes releases Version 2.8

The Labnodes team has successfully launched Labnodes Version 2.8.

Many Vanderbilt groups have already migrated to Labnodes, and with this release the team welcomes the Center for Diabetes Translational Research

The Vanderbilt Diabetes Research and Training Center-supported core facilities are also moving to Labnodes, with the Islet Procurement Analysis Core facility being the first.  Other DRTC supported cores to come on board will include the Hormone Assay and Analytical Services Core, the Metabolic Physiology Shared Resource and their subsequent sub-cores.

Additionally, the Labnodes team performed a Publication and Citation Survey for the Vanderbilt Digestive Disease Research Center. 

This survey provided citation data for the upcoming grant renewal and included digestive disease-related citations for a given time period, identified external collaborators/collaborating institutions and provided data tying these publications to DDRC supported core facilities. Seventy-five percent of the faculty polled participated in the survey. Please contact us if you are interested in a publication and citation survey.

Other new features and improvements in Labnodes 2.8 include:

·         Ability to hide/show the publication graph in member or community profiles.

·         Global search now includes resource content.

·         Removal of MeSH terms without Labnodes connections in some views.

·         Updates to the DRTC, MMPC, TMESCSR and VCSCB landing pages.

·         Improvements to image uploading and editing, navigation language, mESC resource type and viewing previous resource versions.

·         Upgrade of the publication database to support multi-part abstracts.
