With the advances in DNA sequencer-based technologies, it has become possible to automate several steps of the genotyping process leading to increased throughput. To efficiently handle the large amounts of genotypic data generated and help with quality control, there is a strong need for a software system that can help with the tracking of samples and capture and management of data at different steps of the process.
Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) are by nature complex to design and build. They can be successfully applied across almost every facet of lab work, or once built, unfortunately, turn out to be essentially worthless.
An ode to all of those that must suffer the slings and arrows of the not so perfect world of LIMS. It does not matter whether your software is large or small, old or young, it is guaranteed to have the ubiquitous Bugglet.
