Get SeedMeLab: search, manage, visualize and share your data, like never before.

Create a branded data cloud for your project or lab.


SeedMeLab is a data platform for teams struggling with intractable data organization and data access that disrupts productivity, ensues email/attachment deluge, obscures discovery and perpetuates poor knowledge retention. Unlike other file sharing services; SeedMeLab is an elegant approach that transforms data organization and sharing with an ability to add context, discussion and visualization while also establishing distinction for your data with branding. SeedMeLab is available as a cloud service or deployed on-premise with support options.
