Projects differentiate between various datasets (e.g., different studies) or between different versions of the data (e.g., different methods of assigning OTU names). Projects provide an organizing mechanism for user’s data: the OTU data, associated metadata, and user generated text (notes). Each project is a single data file. The name of the current project is displayed in the upper left corner of the main window. Users may choose to use the data management capabilities of Explicet, which are shown in Figure 2. As shown in the figure, projects may contain one or more workspaces. Workspaces are generally made up of subsets of the data contained in the full project and are wholly contained within the project. Projects and workspaces contain figures, which are tabular and/or graphical representations of data (e.g., a graph of species observed, Sobs, for the data in a project or workspace). Workspaces and figure creation dialogs can be annotated with user generated text describing the how/what/why of the analysis in process, as well as draft figure legend text. All figures created within a project and its workspaces are globally available from the project or any workspace created within that project.
