openBIS is a free "open platform for managing scientific information ... [designed] to support research data workflows from bench to publication."[4] The software comes bundled with an electronic laboratory notebook - laboratory information management system (ELN-LIMS) plug-in to extend the software's usefulness.[4]

Product history

The earliest known development version of openBIS is v0.14 from December 6, 2007[1], though earlier work on the system may have been developed "with a privately held biopharmaceutical company."[2] Development was headed by ETH Zurich in collaboration with the Biozentrum of the University of Basel, the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, as well as other academic groups in Switzerland and Europe.[2] The first public release of openBIS occurred in late April 2008 as v8.04.[5] By January 2009 the team had patched the public release to version 8.04.5.[6] The software was originally described as a free extensible open-source biological information management system designed "to support biological research data workflows from the source (i.e. the measurement instruments) to facilitate the process of answering biological questions by means of cross-domain queries against raw data, processed data, knowledge resources and its corresponding metadata." [7]. On April 21, 2010, the development team announced after 8.04.5 the software would be "completely rewritten to be a flexible framework rather than a system with fixed functionality."[8]

On April 4, 2013, the long series of "sprint releases" of the development version culminated in an official new production release as version 13.04.[9] Development on the software continues with the original pattern of sprint releases, every two weeks.[10]

In late September 2014, the openBIS team revealed an ELN-LIMS plug-in that could be added that would add functionality like managing inventory, uploading data sets, managing experiments, and automate the creation of spaces, projects, and experiments in the system.[11][12]. Work on the plug-in continued throughout 2015 and 2016 in sprint releaes[13]

On May 11, 2016 a new major openBIS release became available as version 16.05. A user interface for the ELN-LIMS plug-in was added, and the plug-in was officially integrated into the openBIS 16.05 installer.[14]
