• About

    This is the UPC site for Neurochem project (2008–2011).

    In this site some of the outcome of the project is published and mainteined, such as:

    • NEUROChem scenarios and R scripts for generating synthetic datasets
    • ISO image, bootable through qemu or VirtualBox
    • General data acquisition library for chemical sensors (NeurochemLib) coded in C
    • Documentation for a general data acquisition library for chemical sensors (NeurochemLib)
