TCB::Equipment is a DBIx::Frame object written to keep track of equipment and software at the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group at UIUC. It provides an administrative web interface for adding and managing equipment and software and sharing this information with the users. This is actually a fairly basic function of research groups, but doesn't have a standard software package.

Specific tables are described in the following modules:

  • TCB::System::Equipment - general equipment
  • TCB::System::License - software license counts
  • TCB::System::Package - software packages (no licenses)

Full documentation is provided within the source code.


You must have the following modules installed: You will also need a running database (mysql is the only one tested), and permission to either use the existing contents or create new ones.
