Piims is now all open source.

We have just rolled out the new version of Piims which is based on all open souce software:
the database is Postgres and the front end is run on Tomcat.

We have also added a bunch of functionalities to the lab side of the database and have fixed a large (really large) number of bugs.

Users are now able to see more of the meta-data and pictures of the trays have been visible for awhile now.

The yeast and rice versions of Piims are based on this format and should be publically available soon.

A huge thanks to all the people who worked on this:
Gemez Marshall did the bulk of the work but he had a lot of help from Mourad Ouzzani, Brad Kennedy and Maged Zereba.
