Experiment dependencies


You can now mark individual experiments as related, blocked by, or blocking other experiments. This information will show up in all experiment lists and filtered views, making it easy to identify high-priority blockers risking to delay your research project.

Citation/reference block

Citation block

We've partnered with to make it easy for you to reference research papers and other resources based on their link or DOI number.

Simply type /Citation and enter a DOI link or number. Hover the resulting reference to view its details and Scite authority metrics.

Version history UI

You've long been able to restore experiments to an earlier date by contactingour customer support. Now, you can easily view past snapshots of your work and roll back any experiment right from the Colabra interface.
