Adopt a painless data management system for your project.
SeedMeLab is a research data framework for teams struggling with intractable data. Unlike file sharing services, SeedMeLab transforms data management by enabling fusion of data, its context, its discussion, data visualization and discovery in one spot with full ownership, access control and your brand. SeedMeLab is available as a managed service from SDSC and also as Open Source software.
