NLP LLM AI R&D Experiment ELN Search

AI search

We've made significant upgrades to our Advanced Search which now lets you find experiments based on natural language queries such as:

  • Experiments using E.coli as a model organism
  • Experiments doing CRISPR gene editing in yeast
  • Experiments demonstrating the use of bioreactors
  • Experiments applying nanobodies for cancer targeting
  • Experiments utilizing microfluidics for single-cell analysis
  • Experiments on protein structure prediction methods
  • Experiments exploring bio-conjugation in biomolecule synthesis
  • Experiments employing PCR in DNA replication studies
  • Experiments investigating lipid bilayers for drug delivery
  • Experiments using catalysts in biofuel production
  • Experiments focusing on drug molecule synthesis optimization
  • Experiments using nanomaterials for bio-imaging
  • ...

We also added the ability to search for Colabra users in your workspace (they'll appear in the new People tab), and made Advanced Search easier to access with a big new button in the sidebar.

Finally, you'll notice a range of search user experience improvements such as support for Cmd/Ctrl + Click to open list items in a new tab, or the ability to go back to Advanced Search results without having to manually rerun the query.

Experiment attachment and ELN file management

Files tab

We've added a brand new Files tab to the experiment view which lets you view and manage all attachments in the experimental Summary, as well as upload any other, standalone files relevant to the experiment. This is another step towards more advanced file warehouse functionality many of you have asked for. You can expect further improvements including integration with third party storage providers and file upload APIs down the line.

AI Copilot improvements

We continue iterating on our AI Copilot which can now search across all experiments in the workspace, and leverage information about workspace users and their ongoing research. You can also expect significant response speed improvements in the coming weeks.
