SeedMe a prior incarnation of SeedMeLab was born out of a common problem to easily and swiftly share visualization images, encode videos from images and share them with collaborators. With a success with that service, there was demand to create an improved platform that could provide a better capability for arbitrary data, the software should be compassable and should be available for others to deploy at their own organizations, rather than relying on a central service. This resulted in development of SeedMeLab (formerly SeedMe2) as a set of data sharing building blocks to meet needs of multi-disciplinary research teams with data annotation, discussion and data presentation. SeedMeLab continues to refine the original work with continuous feedback from diverse set of users.
Trivia: SeedMe is an abbreviation of Stream, Encode, Explore and Disseminate My Experiments
