Speaking at Biolog Phenotype Microarray Conference

Today I will be presenting at the Biolog Phenotype Microarrays conference at the University of Florence. Yesterday’s meeting was very good, with many interesting talks on different applications of Biolog arrays, including use of different software (mainly ductApe and opm). A highlight was meeting one of the lead developers of opm, Lea Vaas.

My talk will combine some of Matthias’s results on fitting models to Biolog data, with a demonstration of Mike’s HiPerFit software. Matthias’s work is nearly published (just waiting for a referee to agree to the last minor edit) and Mike’s software is nearly finished (a few bugs to iron out and a few guides to write) so it is all very exciting. The live demo depends on everything working just fine! It worked last night in my hotel room…


Biolog data analysis software training events

Are you making the most of your Biolog data?

Our new HiPerFit software allows you to

  • Fit suitable kinetic models to Biolog data
  • Identify key parameters e.g. lag phase or maximal growth rate
  • Identify best model for data
  • Visualize, compare and contrast results
  • Run analysis in high throughput

Learn to use our software at two free training events

  • Tuesday 30th June at the University of Leicester
  • Friday 24th July at the University of Surrey

At the event you will learn how to

  • Install and run the Biolog data visualizer on your own laptop
  • Ensure that your data is formatted for the Biolog data analyzer
  • How to launch a high throughput analysis run
  • How to use the visualizer to get the most of your data
  • How to install the Biolog data analyzer on a suitable server
