DataJoint launches new cloud-based system to automate neuroscience experiments

Houston, TX, Nov. 11, 2022 –(– DataJoint, a company that streamlines how neuroscientists acquire, process and share their data, is launching what CEO Dimitri Yatsenko calls a “new operating system for science”. .” The new offering, DataJoint Works, greatly expands the ability of scientists to scale up experiments and take on bolder projects.

“DataJoint Works takes the friction out of experimental neuroscience,” Yatsenko said. “DataJoint helps neuroscience labs simplify and scale their operations.”

Scientists can create a personal DataJoint account to set up and manage multiple projects. To set up a project, scientists select the type of experiment, sensors, and analytical methods from DataJoint’s library of standard components. Once a project is set up, scientists can invite collaborators, run their experiment, analyze the data and publish their results.

With DataJoint Works, labs can start acquiring and processing data before writing a single line of code. DataJoint automates complex calculations in the cloud, so labs don’t have to worry about data management and IT infrastructure.

DataJoint partners with the Applied Physics Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University (“APL”), Laurel, Maryland, to integrate DataJoint Works into the broader neuroinformatics ecosystem. APL’s neuroscience team will focus on integrations with BRAIN initiative tools and resources, including the DANDI Archive, Neurodata Without Borders, BossDB, and Neuroglancer.

DataJoint’s plug-and-play component library gives science teams flexibility and reliability in setting up their experiments. These open source components are selected by leading laboratories and regularly updated to support the latest developments.

DataJoint’s architecture unifies source data, calculations and results, to ensure reproducible science. Scientific teams using DataJoint can be sure that their research results are linked to the original data recorded in the laboratory.

“DataJoint helps scientists work faster with confidence,” said Monty Kosma, chief product officer. “DataJoint protects data integrity and reproducibility of scientific results.”

Visit DataJoint at Neuroscience 2022 in San Diego, CA, November 12-16, Booth 2504. DataJoint neuroscientists will demonstrate DataJoint Works and its team of experts will be available for one-on-one consultations. Try DataJoint Works with a free account at
