Additional information on caNanoLab is available on the caNanoLab Wiki.
Who developed caNanoLab?
caNanoLab was developed as a collaboration between the NCI Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT), the NCI Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory (NCL), and the NCI Cancer Centers of Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNEs).
Does caNanoLab leverage any existing standards for describing nanoparticles and associated characterizations?
Standards supporting nanotechnology in the biomedical domain are emerging and under continuous development. caNanoLab leverages and extends concepts from existing standards developed by the biomedical and nanotechnology community. caNanoLab leverages biomedical and nanotechnology concepts from the NCI's Enterprise Vocabulary Services (EVS) and the Nanoparticle Ontology (NPO)
How do I install my own caNanoLab system?
caNanoLab is available for download via the caNanoLab Wiki, in the Installations and Downloads section along with the Installation Guide and Release Note. The installation guide specifies general system requirements and instructions for installing the web application and database. All supporting documentation is available via the caNanoLab Wiki, Documentation and Training section.
What functionality does caNanoLab Support?
caNanoLab provides secure access to data and requires authentication and authorization for access to non-public data.

Who can I contact to submit data into caNanoLab?
A data curator is available to assist in curating data from nanotechnology characterizations in biomedicine. Data curation activities on caNanoLab are currently performed by nanotechnology data scientists at Washington University and the Nanotechnology Characterization Laboratory (NCL). Data curators assist in extracting data from publications and nanotechnology experiments, annotating extracted data, and providing overall data quality control. If you are interested in depositing your data into caNanoLab, please contact NCI CBIIT App Support: Application Support Telephone: 240-276-5541 or toll free: 888-478-4423 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
