Provider: International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility
Descriptions: INCF develops and maintains database and computational infrastructure for neuroscientists. Software tools and standards for the international neuroinformatics community are developed through INCF programs that address infrastructural issues of high importance to the neuroscience community. INCF collects and makes available neuroinformatics tools in the INCF Software Center, where anyone can upload documentation, executables and related files, track use of their software, create a wiki, and establish development teams. Two of the most popular INCF products are Waxholm Space and MUSIC, which are direct outcomes of the INCF Program on Digital Atlasing and Multi-Scale Modeling, respectively. INCF also arranges Scientific Workshops and holds an annual neuroinformatics conference.

Provider: Whole Brain project - UC-San Diego
Descriptions: The Whole Brain Catalog is the flagship project of the Whole Brain Project at the University of California - San Diego. It is an open source, downloadable, multi-scale virtual catalog of the mouse brain and its cellular components, providing zoomable 3D views of structures and their surroundings deep inside the mouse brain. The data is also brought to life with simulation and animation. "In providing open source and collaborative tools, the Whole Brain Project allows neuroscience researchers to make new connections with collaborators and newly discovered data. Combining previously unconnected databases across a single network make possible new and exciting insights about the brain."

Provider: International DOI Foundation
Descriptions: DOI, or Digital Object Identifier, is a standardized system for providing actionable, persistent and interoperable links to "objects," the scope of which was originally limited to online documents, but which term is now applied in this context to online datasets, videos and other formats and types of information containers. Every resource relevant to DOI's is either present in or linked to from this website, for instance: FAQ's, a detailed handbook, fact sheets and white papers; links to DOI registration agencies like DataCite and CrossRef; and links to browser tools being developed to facilitate and expand the usefulness and applicability of the Digital Object Identifier.

Provider: Netherlands BioInformatics Centre
Descriptions: NBIC is engaged in bioinformatics research and education. Its website includes free software downloads, information on databases and projects, a journal and newsletter, and secondary-level education materials.
