Alyx is a database designed for storage and retrieval of all data in an experimental neuroscience laboratory - from subject management through data acquisition, raw data file tracking and storage of metadata resulting from manual analysis.
Alyx is built using industry-standard tools (PostgreSQL and Django) and designed to be interacted with using online webforms to enter and retrieve data manually, or with a documented REST API programmatically (using built-in functions in MATLAB, Python, and most other modern programming languages, or command-line tools such as curl).
It requires minimal setup and can be hosted on your own internal server or in the cloud, for example with Amazon EC2.
