OmicsDI citations


A lost opportunity for science: journals promote data sharing in metabolomics but do not enforce it

PMCID: 5808091
PMID: 29479297
DOI: 10.1007/s11306-017-1309-5

[…] There are now > 750 metabolomics studies indexed on MetabolomeXchange ( and > 1300 on OmicsDI (Perez-Riverol et al. ). These studies with data publicly available in dedicated repositories [MetaboLights (Haug et al. ), Metabolomics Workbench (Sud et al. ), MetaPhen (Carroll et al. ), Me […]


BioModels: expanding horizons to include more modelling approaches and formats

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5753244
PMID: 29106614
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx1023

[…] An effective search is critical to any repository that seeks to encourage model dissemination and reuse. The upgraded search system, based on the Omics Discovery Index () and the EBI search engine (), retains the in-depth capabilities of the previous system whilst offering a streamlined experience for end users in terms of speed and ease of use […]


OLS Client and OLS Dialog: Open Source Tools to Annotate Public Omics Datasets

PMCID: 5707441
PMID: 28792687
DOI: 10.1002/pmic.201700244

[…] In conclusion, it is important to note that, at the moment of writing, several popular resources and tools are already using OLS Client as annotation source, including resources such as IntAct, OmicsDI, BioModels, and the Reactome Pathway Annotation Tool, or stand‐alone tools (which use OLS Dialog on top) such as PeptideShaker, the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) colims (http […]

[…] search (ICPSR), the world's largest archive of digital social science data and one of the NIH-supported repositories (; the NIH BD2K OmicsDI, a data discovery index for proteomics, genomics and metabolomics datasets; the NIH Federal Interagency Traumatic Brain Injury Research (FITBIR,, an informatics system […]


The EBI search engine: EBI search as a service—making biological data accessible for all

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5570174
PMID: 28472374
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx359

[…] of the EBI Search API (Application Programming Interface) to create complex views of inter-related data, thus allowing users to combine and create different views. Examples of this can be seen on the OmicsDI ( portal that integrates 11 data sources relating to transcriptomics, genomics, proteomics and metabolomics; the EBI Metagenomics portal is another example that provide […]


The ProteomeXchange consortium in 2017: supporting the cultural change in proteomics public data deposition

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5210636
PMID: 27924013
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkw936

[…] ‘omics data sets is a key area where easy public accessibility of data sets will accelerate progress in the field. In this context, the PX partners are actively contributing to the recently developed OmicsDI (Omics Discovery Index) portal ( The objective of OmicsDI is to provide a centralized access point to omics data sets coming from different omics approaches including g […]
