Resource Type: Resource, data repository, repository, service resource, storage service resource, ontology, controlled vocabulary, data or information resource

Open repository of biomedical ontologies that provides access via Web browsers and Web services to ontologies. It supports ontologies in OBO format, OWL, RDF, Rich Release Format (RRF), Protege frames, and LexGrid XML. Functionality includes the ability to browse, search and visualize ontologies as well as to comment on, and create mappings for ontologies. Any registered user can submit an ontology. The NCBO Annotator and NCBO Resource Index can also be accessed via BioPortal. Additional features: * Add Reviews: rate the ontology according to several criteria and describe your experience using the ontology. * Add Mappings: submit point-to-point mappings or upload bulk mappings created with external tools. Notification of new Mappings is RSS-enabled and Mappings can be browsed via BioPortal and accessed via Web services. * NCBO Annotator: Tool that tags free text with ontology terms. NCBO uses the Annotator to generate ontology annotations, creating an ontology index of these resources accessible via the NCBO Resource Index. The Annotator can be accessed through BioPortal or directly as a Web service. The annotation workflow is based on syntactic concept recognition (using the preferred name and synonyms for terms) and on a set of semantic expansion algorithms that leverage the ontology structure (e.g., is_a relations). * NCBO Resource Index: The NCBO Resource Index is a system for ontology based annotation and indexing of biomedical data; the key functionality of this system is to enable users to locate biomedical data linked via ontology terms. A set of annotations is generated automatically, using the NCBO Annotator, and presented in BioPortal. This service uses a concept recognizer (developed by the National Center for Integrative Biomedical Informatics, University of Michigan) to produce a set of annotations and expand them using ontology is_a relations. * Web services: Documentation on all Web services and example code is available at: BioPortal Web services.

Resource Type: Resource, service resource, portal, data or information resource

Service that partners with the community to expose and simultaneously drill down into individual databases and data sets and return relevant content. This type of content, part of the so called hidden Web, is typically not indexed by existing web search engines. Every record links back to the originating site. In order for NIF to directly query these independently maintained databases and datasets, database providers must register their database or dataset with the NIF Data Federation and specify permissions. Databases are concept mapped for ease of sharing and to allow better understanding of the results. Learn more about registering your resource, Search results are displayed under the Data Federation tab and are categorized by data type and nervous system level. In this way, users can easily step through the content of multiple resources, all from the same interface. Each federated resource individually displays their query results with links back to the relevant datasets within the host resource. This allows users to take advantage of additional views on the data and tools that are available through the host database. The NIF site provides tutorials for each resource, indicated by the Professor Icon professor icon showing users how to navigate the results page once directed there through the NIF. Additionally, query results may be exported as an Excel document. Note: NIF is not responsible for the availability or content of these external sites, nor does NIF endorse, warrant or guarantee the products, services or information described or offered at these external sites. Integrated Databases: Theses virtual databases created by NIF and other partners combine related data indexed from multiple databases and combine them into one view for easier browsing. * Integrated Animal View * Integrated Brain Gene Expression View * Integrated Disease View * Integrated Nervous System Connectivity View * Integrated Podcasts View * Integrated Software View * Integrated Video View * Integrated Jobs * Integrated Blogs For a listing of the Federated Databases see, or refer to the Resources Listed by NIF Data Federation table below.

Cite this (OBO, RRID:SCR_007083)


Resource Type: Resource, data or information resource, standard specification, narrative resource, knowledge environment, ontology, controlled vocabulary

A collaboration involving developers of science-based ontologies who are establishing a set of principles for ontology development with the goal of creating a suite of orthogonal interoperable reference ontologies in the biomedical domain. In addition to a listing of OBO ontologies, this site provides a statement of the OBO Foundry principles, discussion fora, technical infrastructure, and other services to facilitate ontology development. Feedback is welcome and participation encouraged.

  1. Resource Identification Portal Resources

    Welcome to the RRID Resources search. From here you can search through a compilation of resources used by RRID and see how data is organized within our community.

  2. Navigation

    You are currently on the Community Resources tab looking through categories and sources that RRID has compiled. You can navigate through those categories from here or change to a different tab to execute your search through. Each tab gives a different perspective on data.

  3. Logging in and Registering

    If you have an account on RRID then you can log in from here to get additional features in RRID such as Collections, Saved Searches, and managing Resources.

  4. Searching

    Here is the search term that is being executed, you can type in anything you want to search for. Some tips to help searching:

    1. Use quotes around phrases you want to match exactly
    2. You can manually AND and OR terms to change how we search between words
    3. You can add "-" to terms to make sure no results return with that term in them (ex. Cerebellum -CA1)
    4. You can add "+" to terms to require they be in the data
    5. Using autocomplete specifies which branch of our semantics you with to search and can help refine your search
  5. Save Your Search

    You can save any searches you perform for quick access to later from here.

  6. Query Expansion

    We recognized your search term and included synonyms and inferred terms along side your term to help get the data you are looking for.

  7. Collections

    If you are logged into RRID you can add data records to your collections to create custom spreadsheets across multiple sources of data.

  8. Sources
