Provider: SNOMED International
Descriptions: SNOMED International is a not-for-profit association that develops and promotes use of SNOMED CT to support safe and effective health information exchange. SNOMED CT is a clinical terminology and is considered to be the most comprehensive multilingual healthcare terminology in the world... Each year, avoidable deaths and injuries occur because of poor communication between healthcare practitioners. The delivery of a standard clinical language for use across the world's health information systems can therefore be a significant step towards improving the quality and safety of healthcare.

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.

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.
