Cloneable Free ELN

Welcome to a CFWPELN (Cloneable Free WordPress Electronic Lab Notebook)

Overview of this Website

A CFWPELN is a Cloneable Free WordPress Electronic Lab Notebook. This Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) is built entirely with the free WordPress Content Management System and free WordPress plugins. This ELN website is an example of a CFWPELN. It is easily cloneable and has geo-location capabilities. The data used in this website is from an NSF research project for testing soil samples. The project studied soil samples which contained bacteria that could break down the chemicals paraoxon or methyl parathion.

Please see our Help page for more about CFWPELNs (including a suggested pronunciation) and for an overview of the main sections of this site. Also, the short course of How to Build Your Free ELN covers the basics of what is required to build a free ELN similar to this one. 

Since this is one of the few ELNs that easily incorporate the use of geo-locations and maps, this makes it a good candidate for the following types of mapping studies. 

  • Migrations of people, plants, and animals
  • Biodiversity of plants and animals
  • Mineral and energy resources
  • Impacts of plants, animals, bacteria, and weather on the environment
  • People groups for a number of purposes, including epidemiology, anthropology, archaeology, sociology, criminology, or econometrics
