odc-sci contributes to the
a dynamic database of research resources (databases, data sets, software tools, materials and services)
of interest to and produced by biomedical researchers.
Each Research Resource receives a unique ID that allows it to be tracked in the literature and linked
to useful information. If you would like to add your resource or recommend a resource for inclusion in the
Registry, please follow the steps on this page.
Please read our tutorial describing the different types of resources we accept to help decide which type your resource belongs to.
Just provide the minimal information for a resource and we'll fill in the rest. Suggesting a resource will not generate an RRID until a SciCrunch curator approves it.
Spinal cord injury (SCI) produces a complex syndrome characterized by loss of motor control and mobility; loss of bladder, bowel and sexual function; pathological pain; and loss of autonomy. The multifaceted nature of SCI presents a challenge for the SCI translational therapeutic pipeline. This problem of SCI complexity can be conceptualized as a big-data issue: the field needs a forum for large-scale data-indexing, data-sharing, and application of advanced analytics to catalyze SCI discoveries. To address this challenge our team has begun assembling a large multicenter, multispecies database of SCI research data spanning across a wide spectrum of SCI severities, treatments and outcomes. To fully harness the potential of SCI big-data we are building a digital infrastructure to democratize SCI data science, allowing outside researchers to access existing SCI big-data, contribute their own data, and enable access to user-friendly tools for big-data analytics for knowledge discovery within SCI research.
