FAIRsharing

Allows to research informative and educational resource. FAIRsharing is a web-based, searchable portal of three interlinked registries, containing both in-house and crowdsourced manually curated descriptions of standards, databases and data policies, combined with an integrated view across all three types of resource. Each record registered contains detailed description on itself and on its relations with other life science infrastructure. It serves to find bodies and journal publishers to navigate the metadata landscape of the biological sciences. The tool has been extended to different fields to help users across all disciplines.

Stemformatics

Helps stem cell biologists to identify and assess relevant datasets, gene sets and pathways. Stemformatics provides an online data portal and a collection of visualisation tools. It assists users by providing a format ‘translation’ feature, which allows to download public experiments in formats ready for use in these external tools. The tool has begun to integrate multiple ‘omics’ platforms for collaborators, and future releases will see inclusion of miRNA, proteomic, RNAseq and epigenomic datasets.

BioDWH / Bioinformatics Data Warehouse

Provides ready-to-use parsers to extract data from public life science data sources and to store the content in a data warehouse. BioDWH stands out from other approaches by providing up-to-date integrated knowledge, platform and database independence as well as high usability and customization. BioDWH has already been used in the context of a medical bioinformatics project to integrate biomedical information with clinical data of rare metabolic diseases.

SeqHound

Provides a high-performance server platform for bioinformatics research in a locally-hosted environment. SeqHound has been developed as an integrated biological sequence, taxonomy, annotation and 3-D structure database system. SeqHound can be easily installed as a tool in any laboratory and used as a resource for a number of bioinformatics projects. For data access and mining, an extensive application programming interface (API) has been developed for Perl, C and C++ access and a streamlined online interface is available.
