STJUDE-SRM (Shared Resource Management) is a laboratory management system designed to support shared resource facility (or core lab) activities. It was designed to support the laboratories in the Hartwell Center for Bioinformatics and Biotechnology at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital including DNA synthesis, Peptide synthesis, DNA sequencing, Functional Genomics (spotted microarray laboratory), and Affymetrix (commercial microarrays) laboratories. STJUDE-SRM was also designed so that it is sufficiently modular and scalable to support other laboratory activities as needed. It could conceivably support all facilities on a campus or at a research organization and provide a single portal for investigators to access these resources, retrieve data, receive invoices for services, and generate reports. STJUDE-SRM was developed by the Software Development Group in the Hartwell Center. Key contributors include Clayton Naeve, Ph.D., Momodou Sanyang, Vicki Beal, Nilesh Dosooye, Yingliang Du, Andrew Pappas, Srinivas Raghavan, Sundeep Shakya, and Matt Stine.
The system was developed using Java(tm) Platform Enterprise Edition and related technologies, including Enterprise Java Beans (EJB), Servlets, and JSPs. SRM also makes use of open source frameworks such as iBATIS, DisplayTag, AppFuse, Spring, and Hibernate .
