My lab manages all its plasmids, transgenic plants, constructs, ESTs
etc. using ACeDB. I am quite pleased with ACeDB. I will
say that the critical thing is that at the very beginning of
the process, you put a lot of thought into how you define your objects.
Changing the model for an object is sometimes trivial (eg. if
you want to add an optional tag) but can entail a lot of
work is you modify existing tags.
I have a web site that describes how to create an in-house
ACeDB database, and you can download a sample database. See
