Encyclopedia of Life

website

Provider: Encyclopedia of Life
Descriptions: The Encyclopedia of Life is a work in progress that aims to dynamically synthesize biodiversity knowledge about all known species: taxonomy, geographic distribution, genetics, evolutionary history, morphology, behavior, ecological relationships, and importance for human well being. As it becomes more complete, it may serve as the primary resource for scientists, natural resource managers, conservationists, teachers, and students around the world. The EOL's creators and contributors believe that "...its encompassing scope and innovation will have a major global impact in facilitating biodiversity research, conservation, and education." The EOL is staffed by both scientists and non-scientists working from museums and research institutions around the world.

DataCite

website

Provider: DataCite
Descriptions: DataCite is an international organization established in December, 2009 to promote and facilitate the expansion of the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) system to include scientific datasets. Membership includes publishers, libraries and data centers. Researchers will benefit from access to scientific data supporting findings explicated in full-text articles, and will be able to link to that underlying data in the same way DOI enables links to text. DataCite provides standards and workflows for the publication of this data, and enables researchers to reliably locate and cite submitted data.

Science at Creative Commons [formerly Science Commons]

website

Provider: Creative Commons
Descriptions: From the website: "The more we understand about science and its complexities, the more important it is for scientific data to be shared openly. It’s not useful to have ten different labs doing the same research and not sharing their results; likewise, we’re much more likely to be able to pinpoint diseases if we have genomic data from a large pool of individuals. Since 2004, we’ve been focusing our efforts to expand the use of Creative Commons licenses to scientific and technical research."

Researchmatch.org

website

Provider: National Institutes of Health/National Center for Research Resources
Descriptions: This website from Department of Health and Human Service's Clinical and Translational Science Awards consortium is for researchers recruiting subjects, and for those who would like to volunteer to participate in clinical and other health studies. (University of Texas Health Science Center Houston's Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences and UT Medical Branch's Institute for Translational Sciences are members of CTSA.) Institutions and potential volunteers register here; personal information of volunteers is kept secure. "Anyone can join ResearchMatch. Many studies are looking for healthy people... while some are looking for people with specific health conditions. ResearchMatch can help ‘match’ you with any type of research study, ranging from surveys to clinical trials, always giving you the choice to decide what studies may interest you."

Open WetWare

website

Provider: MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
Descriptions: "OpenWetWare is an effort to promote the sharing of information, know-how, and wisdom among researchers and groups who are working in biology & biological engineering. OWW provides a place for labs, individuals, and groups to organize their own information and collaborate with others easily and efficiently. In the process, we hope that OWW will not only lead to greater collaboration between member groups, but also provide a useful information portal to our colleagues, and ultimately the rest of the world."

NextBio

website

Provider: NextBio
Descriptions: NextBio Basic is a free web application providing access to a 'curated, correlated database' of public data which also integrates literature, clinical trials and scientific news. Its semantic framework is based on gene, tissue, disease and compound ontologies. A single search for information on a gene yields results categorically arranged on a single page: an overview of the gene's functions; a list of tissues in which the gene is expressed; diseases and compounds relating to the gene; a list of the top topic-associated researchers and authors; literature, associated clinical trials, and more. Registered users of this application (registration for this basic version is free) can personalize their experience, communicate, collaborate and share data with the rest of the NextBio community.

Neuroscience Information Framework 3.1

website

Provider: National Institutes of Health
Descriptions: The Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF) is a semantically-enhanced portal to a dynamic inventory of Web-based neuroscience resources. An initiative of the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research, NIF enhances discovery and access to often unindexed but publicly available research data, datasets, software and tools in the deep web, as well as linking to PubMed records and open-access literature. The NIF Project provides the NIF Registry, Antibody Registry, Drug Related Gene Database, neuroscience ontology and a way to contribute to it (via the NeuroLex wiki) and semantic tagging services. NIF Navigator, a customizable, stand-alone search tool for incorporation into websites or wikis, draws query results from all the NIF's own components and from other sites and accessible databases. The valuable resources at NIF are too numerous to be described adequately here.
