Cite this (Biositemaps, RRID:SCR_001976)


Resource Type: Resource, software resource, service resource

Biositemaps represent a mechanism for computational biologists and bio-informaticians to openly broadcast and retrieve meta-data about biomedical data, tools and services (i.e., biomedical resources) over the Internet. All Institutions with an interest in biomedical research can publish a biositemap.rdf file on their Internet site. The technology, developed by the Biositemaps Working Group of the NIH Roadmap National Centers of Biomedical Computing (NCBC), addresses (i) locating, (ii) querying, (iii) composing or combining, and (iv) mining biomedical resources. Each site which intends to contribute to the inventory instantiates a file on its Internet site biositemap.rdf which conforms to a defined RDF schema and uses concepts from the Biomedical Resource Ontology to describe the resources. Each biositemap.rdf file is simply a list of controlled metadata about resources (software tools, databases, material resources) that your organization uses or believes are important to biomedical research. The key enabling technologies are the Information Model (IM) which is the list of metadata fields about each resource (resource_name, description, contact_person, resource_type,...) and the Biomedical Resource Ontology (BRO) which is a controlled terminology for the resource_typeand which is used to improve the sensitivity and specificity of web searches. Biositemaps blend the features of Sitemaps (enabling efficient web-content exploration) and RSS Feeds (a mechanism for wide and effective news dissemination). As a hybrid between Sitemaps and RSS feeds, the Biositemap infrastructure facilitates a decentralized, portable, extensible and computationally tractable generation and consumption of meta-data about existent, revised and new resources for biomedical computation. Web browsers, crawlers and robots can discover, accumulate, process, integrate and deliver Biositemaps content to (human or machine) users in a variety of graphical, tabular, computational formats. Biositemaps content allows such web browsers to pool resource-associated metadata from disparate and diverse sites and present it to the user in an integrated fashion. The Biositemaps protocol provides clues, information and directives for all Biositemap web harvesters that point to the existence and content of such biomedical resources at different sites.

Cite this (LabWorm, RRID:SCR_014079)


Resource Type: Resource, catalog, data or information resource, portal, database

A comprehensive index for locating and compiling bioinformatics and online science tools. Users can browse, rate, share and save various tools listed in the LabWorm repository. Resources contain a short description, a list of related sites, comments, a list of users who have shared and rated the resource, and the main site URL. Resources may be saved to a personal toolbox collection. User news feeds can be customized to include new scientific literature from journals of choice. Users who want to utilize LabWorm tools to improve their own website can access the alternate Developer site.

Cite this (OMICtools, RRID:SCR_002250)


Resource Type: Resource, software resource, catalog, data or information resource, database

A free directory that provides an overview of more than 1600 software and databases related to next-generation sequencing (NGS) and microarray technologies. The current resources for NGS informatics are extremely fragmented. The goal of OMICtools is to help the scientific community to find software and databases. OMICtools will be continually updated to include the very latest papers in this area. For developers: * Submit your software and share it with the research community. * Update the description of your tool (publication, image, programming language, etc.). For users: * Suggest new software and databases that are not listed in the directory. * Write comments and rate the tools. First select the tool and then click on the links Details.

Resource Type: Resource, database, service resource, registry, storage service resource, data repository, data or information resource

Global registry of research data repositories from all academic disciplines that allows the easy identification of appropriate research data repositories, both for data producers and users. Information icons display principal attributes of a repository that can be used for multi-faceted searches. Repository operators can suggest their infrastructures to be listed via a simple application form. A repository is indexed when the minimum requirements are met, i.e. mode of access to the data and repository, as well as the terms of use.

  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.
