JBEI-ICE helps you manage genetic parts and does it well. It has most features required for day-to-day management of a lab or bio-facility parts repository.

Here are the features we use the most. Parts can be searched by name, keyword, or BLAST search. Each part has a summary page with its meta-data and an interactive sequence viewer. Adding new parts one by one or by batch is possible but could be made easier. There is basic support for indicating the physical location of parts on plates or boxes in your freezer.

Caveats:
- ICE will be difficult to install for non-specialists (see their docs)
- While ICE does well with parts management, you may still need a sample management system on the side.
- ICE allows to attach data files to a part, but not data in a computer-friendly form.
