Notice to Users: The development and support of ELN has ended

ELN is a shared web-based version of the traditional paper laboratory notebook. Each notebook page shows data and time-stamped entries that include static information such as text and images, as well as dynamic information ranging from animated GIF images and video clips to rotatable 3-D protein structures and X-Y graphs of spectra that support zoom and other capabilities. The basic ELN consists of a Java client that interacts with your Netscape or IE web browser and the ELN server, and a Perl CGI script that interacts with a web server.

Versions are available for Windows9X/NT/2000/XP, Solaris, MacOS X, Linux and Irix platforms.
