Significant functionality has also been added to BioBook, including advanced statistics (ANOVA, t-tests etc), extended graphing support and enhanced reporting features.
The latest release now includes integration capabilities through a web services layer coupled with an application program interface (API) to provide an extensible and flexible solution. Following on from the release of BioBook in 2006, E-WorkBook Suite 7.0 also includes enhancements in the areas of biological data capture and storage. In addition, a new discipline-specific extension, ChemBook, has been designed specifically to support the workflows of synthetic, medicinal and analytical chemists.
