APPLAUSE database updated

on 18/09/14

The APPLAUSE database received a major update this month: the underlying structure was renewed and a large batch of data was added. Currently the database contains metadata of 19017 plates and over 127 million extracted sources from 4887 scans.

The database and website is still in beta stage. We expect to have minor changes to the database structure, as we continue to improve our plate processing pipeline.
