Converting libraries to identification projects

I cannot find my library anymore after converting my database from version 6 to version 7. What happened to it?

The libraries as present in BioNumerics version 6 and earlier are completely revised in BioNumerics Seven and are now referred to as identification projects. A library is constructed by the user and each unit has to be created and defined separately by the user. In contrast, an identification project starts from a comparison, therefore it is more dynamic and easier to create and control. The units do not need to be defined as such, but can be taken from the comparison groups or an entry field. There are also more and more powerful classifier algorithms included in version 7. During the conversion of a database from version 6 (or earlier) to version 7, any library present will be converted to an identification project and an associated comparison.

The comparison will be locked by default and contains all entries that were included in the library. The units of the library are present as comparison groups. If entries were assigned to several units in the library, they will only be assigned to the last unit. The entries can be clustered to easily evaluate the correctness of the units.

The identification project that has been created based on the library, is connected to the comparison with the comparison groups as labels. If the settings of the library correspond to a classifier, this classifier will be created during conversion. In this case, identifying against this identification project in version 7 will give the same results as identification against the library in earlier versions. If the settings do not match, no classifier will be created and you will need to create one yourself before using the identification project.
