[…] ng terms. Besides assuring compliance with the OBO Foundry principles, we also ensured that the ONS followed the increasingly established FAIR principles []. As such, the ONS is also published in the FAIRsharing database (https://fairsharing.org/bsg-s001068).To enhance interoperability with other ontologies, the ONS builds on a subset of the Ontology for Biomedical Investigations (OBI) []. The sub […]


Datasets2Tools, repository and search engine for bioinformatics datasets, tools and canned analyses

Sci Data
PMCID: 5827688
PMID: 29485625
DOI: 10.1038/sdata.2018.23

[…] In fact, there are now many centralized repositories that cover all areas of biomedical and biological research. These repositories are indexed for searching and browsing by sites such as DataMed and FAIRSharing. Similarly, several efforts have been made to aggregate and index bioinformatics tools, for example, OMICtools.While there are paths to start from a dataset landing page in a centralized b […]


ImmPort, toward repurposing of open access immunological assay data for translational and clinical research

[…] urces such NCBI Gene, HGNC, MGI, Protein Ontology, and UniProt. ImmPort engages with several data standards communities such as the Human Immune Phenotyping Consortium (HIPC) Standards Working Group, BioSharing (fairsharing.org), the Patient Derived Tumor Xenograft Minimal Information (PDX-MI) working group and the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative (datascience.nih.gov/bd2k/about) throug […]


Towards an open grapevine information system

[…] egiescience.edu/labs/huala-lab/projects/plant-genomics-interface-plain), and with any other specific purpose (for example, for phylogenetic studies in Ayres et al.). Other initiatives as for instance BioSharing (https://biosharing.org/), exist to publicize resources with a commitment to providing open data.With limited resources, a sensible strategy for the grapevine community is to promote the us […]

[…] ncluding ImmPort, the data warehouse of immunology-related datasets led by Stanford (), The Human Immunology Project Consortium (), which channels experimental datasets to the ImmPort repository, The BioSharing Initiative () and The Stanford Digital Repository (), operated by Stanford University Libraries, which helps all Stanford investigators to archive and disseminate data of all kinds. We plan […]
