URL: http://dip.doe-mbi.ucla.edu/

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

Database to catalog experimentally determined interactions between proteins combining information from a variety of sources to create a single, consistent set of protein-protein interactions that can be downloaded in a variety of formats. The data were curated, both, manually and also automatically using computational approaches that utilize the the knowledge about the protein-protein interaction networks extracted from the most reliable, core subset of the DIP data. Because the reliability of experimental evidence varies widely, methods of quality assessment have been developed and utilized to identify the most reliable subset of the interactions. This CORE set can be used as a reference when evaluating the reliability of high-throughput protein-protein interaction data sets, for development of prediction methods, as well as in the studies of the properties of protein interaction networks. Tools are available to analyze, visualize and integrate user's own experimental data with the information about protein-protein interactions available in the DIP database. The DIP database lists protein pairs that are known to interact with each other. By interact they mean that two amino acid chains were experimentally identified to bind to each other. The database lists such pairs to aid those studying a particular protein-protein interaction but also those investigating entire regulatory and signaling pathways as well as those studying the organization and complexity of the protein interaction network at the cellular level. Registration is required to gain access to most of the DIP features. Registration is free to the members of the academic community. Trial accounts for the commercial users are also available.

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

Data repository of de-identified patient data, aggregated in a standardized manner, to enable analyses across many rare diseases and to facilitate various research projects, clinical studies, and clinical trials. The aim is to facilitate drug and therapeutics development, and to improve the quality of life for the many millions of people who are suffering from rare diseases. The goal of GRDR is to enable analyses of data across many rare diseases and to facilitate clinical trials and other studies. During the two-year pilot program, a web-based template will be developed to allow any patient organization to establish a rare disease patient registry. At the conclusion of the program, guidance will be available to patient groups to establish a registry and to contribute de-identified patient data to the GRDR repository. A Request for Information (RFI) was released on February 10, 2012 requesting information from patient groups about their interest in participating in a GRDR pilot project. ORDR selected 30 patient organizations to participate in this pilot program to test the different functionalities of the GRDR. Fifteen (15) organizations with established registries and 15 organizations that do not have patient registry. The 15 patient groups, each without a registry, were selected to assist in testing the implementation of the ORDR Common Data Elements (CDEs) in the newly developed registry infrastructure. These organizations will participate in the development and promotion of a new patient registry for their rare disease. The GRDR program will fund the development and hosting of the registry during the pilot program. Thereafter, the patient registry is expected to be self-sustaining.The 15 established patient registries were selected to integrate their de-identified data into the GRDR to evaluate the data mapping and data import/export processes. The GRDR team will assist these organizations in mapping their existing registry data to the CDEs. Participating registries must have a means to export their de-identified registry data into a specified data format that will facilitate loading the data into the GRDR repository on a regular basis. The GRDR will also develop the capability to link patients'''' data and medical information to donated biospecimens by using a Voluntary Global Unique Patient Identifier (GUID). The identifier will enable the creation of an interface between the patient registries that are linked to biorepositories and the Rare Disease Human Biospecimens/Biorepositories (RD-HUB) http://biospecimens.ordr.info.nih.gov/.

Resource Type: Resource, data set, narrative resource, experimental protocol, data or information resource

Data sets of clinical / behavioral and image data are available for download by qualified researchers from a seven year, multi-site, longitudinal study using magnetic resonance technologies to study brain maturation in healthy, typically-developing infants, children, and adolescents and to correlate brain development with cognitive and behavioral development. The information obtained in this study is expected to provide essential data for understanding the course of normal brain development as a basis for understanding atypical brain development associated with a variety of developmental, neurological, and neuropsychiatric disorders affecting children and adults. This study enrolled over 500 children, ranging from infancy to young adulthood. The goal was to study each participant at least three times over the course of the project at one of six Pediatric Centers across the United States. Brain MR and clinical/behavioral data have been compiled and analyzed at a Data Coordinating Center and Clinical Coordinating Center. Additionally, MR spectroscopy and DTI data are being analyzed. The study was organized around two objectives corresponding to two age ranges at the time of enrollment, each with its own protocols. * Objective 1 enrolled children ages 4 years, 6 months through 18 years (total N = 433). This sample was recruited across the six Pediatric Study Centers using community based sampling to reflect the demographics of the United States in terms of income, race, and ethnicity. The subjects were studied with both imaging and clinical/behavioral measures at two year intervals for three time points. * Objective 2 enrolled newborns, infants, toddlers, and preschoolers from birth through 4 years, 5 months, who were studied three or more times at two Pediatric Study Centers at intervals ranging from three months for the youngest subjects to one year as the children approach the Objective 1 age range. Both imaging and clinical/behavioral measures were collected at each time point. Participant recruitment used community based sampling that included hospital venues (e.g., maternity wards and nurseries, satellite physician offices, and well-child clinics), community organizations (e.g., day-care centers, schools, and churches), and siblings of children participating in other research at the Pediatric Study Centers. At timepoint 1, of those enrolled, 114 children had T1 scans that passed quality control checks. Staged data release plan: The first data release included structural MR images and clinical/behavioral data from the first assessments, Visit 1, for Objective 1. A second data release included structural MRI and clinical/behavioral data from the second visit for Objective 1. A third data release included structural MRI data for both Objective 1 and 2 and all time points, as well as preliminary spectroscopy data. A fourth data release added cortical thickness, gyrification and cortical surface data. Yet to be released are longitudinally registered anatomic MRI data and diffusion tensor data. A collaborative effort among the participating centers and NIH resulted in age-appropriate MR protocols and clinical/behavioral batteries of instruments. A summary of this protocol is available as a Protocol release document. Details of the project, such as study design, rationale, recruitment, instrument battery, MRI acquisition details, and quality controls can be found in the study protocol. Also available are the MRI procedure manual and Clinical/Behavioral procedure manuals for Objective 1 and Objective 2.
