Feeding Experiments End-user Database (FEED)

The Feeding Experiments End-user Database (FEED) was first developed by the Mammalian Feeding Working Group at NESCent to permit synthetic, evolutionary analyses of the physiology of mammalian feeding. FEED manages raw physiologic data linked to extensive metadata, including EMG, kinematic, and bone strain recordings.

The successor version (FEED v2) was developed with support by NSF awards DBI-1062333 and DBI-1444582 to Christine Wall (Duke University). Full credits are available from the database website (click "About").
