Workspaces allow you to define a set of strains in a defined group, which you can revisit at any time. Such groups should be considered as a list of strains used in a given study and can be shared with other users. (This functionality is covered in [Managing your buddies](buddies)). Workspaces are also the main method to defined input data sets for certain analysis pipelines in EnteroBase.
Take an existing set of search results and save a workspace via:
- From the menu above the strain records, go to the Workspace menu and select
Workspace -> Save
- Enter a memorable name for this workspace.
To retrieve a workspace:
From the menu above the strain records, select
Workspace -> Load
Choose from the names of workspaces.
