Architecture. Brunn is a client-server system. The program runs on the client, whereas the server hosts the database. The data model reflects the stepwise way in which plates are constructed in Brunn. For example, during creation of a MasterPlate, the LayoutWells and LayoutMarkers are used as templates for creating the Wells and SampleMarkers. (Please note that the figure depicts a simplified version of Brunn's data model. The complete version is available at the Brunn webpage [27].)
