New BioWES video guides were revealed

New bioWES video guides were revealed. Complete guide for new users is divided to three videos, each of them is focusing on different topic from general idea explanation, protocol template creating, web interface overview to final results sharing.

Fist video – General idea explanation – From protocol design through data acquisition and processing steps to final protocol sharing. Web interface overview.

Second video – Protocol creation, filling experimental protocol and connection with other protocols. Connection, visualization and evolution of protocol (Cloning). Protocol and protocol template sharing. Protcool and protocol template sharing.

Third video – Web interface explanation – protocols and protocol templates visualization. Experimental data downloading. Processing modules – process your data directly in the repository. Plugin – automatic protocol filling (information from devices: microscopes, cameras). Mobile devices usage.

AQUAEXCEL Online course – bioWES repository Training School

In the days of 25. 4. 16 + 27. 4. 2016 + 29. 4. 2016 was held AQUAEXCEL Online course – bioWES repository Training School. Participants learned how to design experiment from the beggining of hypothesis to final result sharing. How to create protocols from measurement, attach data, process data and share results between cooperators. BioWES is used as an official AQUAEXCEL consortium data repository. More information is available via web pages:

Biowes in IFREMER

New version of bioWES platform was installed in IFREMER. The demonstration of new functions of the system was realized to the researchers and technicians who will work with the platform. bioWES platform will be used to cover the process of fish rearing from larvae to the experimental fish using variety of protocols. The platform will be connected to the internal databases of IFREMER to partially automate filling of protocols.



New BioWes local repository

New BioWes local repository was installed in IFREMER France. The server dedicated to the data storage from the research activities is located directly at the institute. IFREMER as a AQUAEXCEL2020 member is going to collaborate on the BioWes system testing within the project.


Monitoring of Fish activity using BioWes

BioWes system was used for storage and subsequent analysis of physical activity of fish (Thylapia) at different concentrations of algae in the breeding aquarium. The experimental data were obtained by IR camera and the calculation of the total activity of fish was based on optical flow measurements. The experiments were carried out at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

BioWes used for TNA project within the consortium Aquaexcel

The project aimed at verifying a system for tracking fish in medium tanks funded as TNA project (Trans national access) within the consortium Aquaexcel used platform BioWes to store the data. For the measurement using IR cameras and creating a 3D trajectory of fish a special plug-in was created to process the data directly from the local BioWes database.

Testing of Digital Cameras using BioWes

BioWes protocols were used to store and sort data obtained during testing of various types of the digital cameras at the Department of Cybernetics of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen ( BioWes protocols ensured clarity of acquired data and enabled their use for commercial purpose.
