Manually Entering Experiment Data

Data can often be captured by using file uploads, database queries, or the API. Data can also be entered in directly.

Single-valued data (e.g. capacity of a fermentor) can be entered in the bottom panel.

Multi-valued data (e.g. temperature ramp or cycle in a step) can be written to both inputs and outputs using the multi-valued data editor in the top panel. This top panel can be accessed two different ways:

1) right click on any cell in the bottom panel and select "edit data", or

2) click on the yellow indicator that appears on any multi-valued cell in your experiment

An individual run can have a mixture of single-valued and multi-valued properties. If the lower panel is used to change a value, then all multi-valued instances of the property will be converted to single-valued instances. On the other hand, if the upper panel is used to change values of a property then all values for this property will be converted to multi-valued. If a property is edited in the top panel to return a property to its single-valued state, its value will again be editable in the bottom panel. Single-valued data does not need to be cleaned to be exported on every row of the exported data table corresponding to the associated run.

 

Tips for Data Entry

Paste

Data tables can be pasted into the top panel from the clipboard using ctrl-v (PC) or cmd-v (Mac). Rows will be created as required to accommodate every row of the copied data table.

Fill Down: ,

Clicking the Fill Down buttons in either the top or bottom panels will perform different actions depending on context. The keyboard shortcuts ctrl-d (PC) or cmd-d (Mac) can also be used.

1) When more than one row of data has been highlighted in the top panel, Fill Down will set all values within the highlighted properties to the values of the top-most highlighted row:

2) When a single row of data has been highlighted in the top panel, Fill Down will set all values within the selected properties to the values of the row immediately above the highlighted row.

3) When no runs have been selected in the bottom panel and the cursor is in a cell, Fill Down will set its value to the value of the cell immediately above it

4) When two or more runs have been selected in the bottom panel and the cursor is in a cell, Fill Down will set all values for the selected runs to the value of the top-most selected run. If the values of multiple properties should be updated in the bottom panel, change the selected cell (e.g., Tab or Shift-Tab) and then repeat the Fill Down action.
