Caesar Software, LLC today announced the release of StrainMan 1.0, its new
software product to help scientists involved in microbial genetic research
organize and document their strain collections. "StrainMan is a
command-and-control center for microbial genetic research. It provides
tools to manage the large amounts of complex information related to a strain
collection" according to Dr. Robert S. Negm, President of Caesar Software
"StrainMan demonstrates Caesar Software's commitment to bring innovative
applications of computer technology to the scientific community."
Scientists engaged in bacterial genetics can generate hundreds of modified
strains every week, making it difficult to track each strain's genetic
characteristics. Detailed record keeping is essential, since without
records, a strain collection is virtually useless. In many
laboratories, information regarding a given strain is divided among
file cards and individual memories. Efforts to retrieve and summarize the
from these varied sources are inconvenient and inefficient.
Caesar Software developed StrainMan to provide scientists with a solution to
the problems of collecting and organizing microbial genetic data.
The principal advantages offered by StrainMan are a well-organized and
comprehensive description of each strain's characteristics, easy retrieval
strain information, and the ability to publish any portion of the database
on the Worldwide Web.
Available now, StrainMan 1.0 runs on computers using the Macintosh,
WindowsNT operating systems, and is priced at $995 ($795 for academic
