The Workflow Information Storage Toolkit (WIST) is a template-based toolkit to facilitate rapid LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) development. WIST is designed to create LIMS modules with a web-based front end and a SQL database back end, along with a repository for larger data objects (e.g., files) that are impractical to store in SQL tables.
