Brainverse is an open-source, cross-platform desktop application to enable researchers add to reproducible practices into every project.

  • An electronic laboratory notebook built as a cross platform desktop application also has feature to be deployed as web application
  • Enables users to plan experiments, collect, analyze and reuse data, and collaborate
  • Adds semantic annotation to data with relevant metadata based on NeuroImaging data Model (NIDM) making experimental neuroimaging study more reproducible, and making data FAIR
  • Intercept the research workflow at planning stage, curating (raw, processed, results) data at the source and helping users to annotate every step of the process.
