Resource Identification Initiative

January 18, 2018

Resource Identification Initiative
https://www.force11.org/group/resource-identification-initiative

The Resource Identification Initiative has been launched and moved beyond a pilot phase. We invite publishers, editors, authors, biocurators, librarians, resource provides, and vendors to participate. Authors can participate by adding RRIDs to their papers, go to scicrunch.org/resources. The Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) are in the published literature; publications currently reporting RRIDs can be found in Google Scholar PubMed Central or PubMed. The Resource Identification Initiative (#RRID) is designed to help researchers sufficiently cite the key resources used to produce the scientific findings reported in the biomedical literature. A diverse group of collaborators are leading the project, including the Neuroscience Information Framework and the Oregon Health & Science University Library, with the support of the National Institutes of Health and the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility. Resources (e.g. antibodies, model organisms, and software projects) reported in the biomedical literature often lack sufficient detail to enable reproducibility or reuse. For example, catalog numbers for antibody reagents are infrequently reported, and the version numbers for software programs used for data analysis are often omitted. This has been called out as a serious enough problem by the NIH to introduce new guidelines for Rigor and Transparency for almost all awards in starting in May of 2016. These guidelines argue for authentication of key research resources, and transparency of how they are reported. The Resource Identification Initiative aims to enable resource transparency within the biomedical literature through promoting the use of unique Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs). In addition to being unique, RRID’s meet three key criteria, they are: 1) Machine readable; 2) Free to generate and access; and 3) Consistent across publishers and journals.

Antibody Registry

January 17, 2018

Antibody Registry
http://antibodyregistry.org/

The Antibody Registry gives researchers a way to universally identify antibodies used in their research. The Antibody Registry assigns unique and persistent identifiers to each antibody so that they can be referenced within publications. These identifiers only point to a single antibody, this allows the antibody used in your methods section to be identified by humans and search engines. The Antibody Registry includes commercial antibodies from hundreds of commercial vendors and thousands of individual labs. If the antibody that you are using does not appear in the list, please add your antibody by using the catalog number and the url of the vendor. Our curators can use the url to find information on the antibody and material data sheets. Home-grown antibodies may be added as well (additional information may be required). After submitting an antibody, a permanent identifier will be assigned. This identifier can be quickly traced back in The Antibody Registry. We never delete records, so even when an antibody disappears from a vendor’s catalog, or is sold to another vendor, we can trace the provenance of that antibody.

LabWorm – Aggregator of Scientific Online Tools
https://labworm.com/

LabWorm is an aggregator of scientific online tools. It lets you stay updated on the newest and most relevant tools for your research. LabWorm members get weekly emails with the Top 5 Freshest Tools – keeping you in the know. LabWorm is also a Crowd Voting platform for the scientific community, leveraging the community’s hands-on experience and judgment to vote on the various tools. The aim here is to challenge the traditional way of judging scientific work, giving the power back to the scientists in the lab. Science, they believe, should be open. LabWorm was created to allow fellow scientists to get more involved in our community and to stay informed on the research tools other scientists are using to work more efficiently. You are able to look into other scientists’ Tool Collections, see how they voted and deduce from that what are the most relevant tools for you.

GenBank ®

December 19, 2017

GenBank ®
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank/

GenBank ® is the NIH genetic sequence database, an annotated collection of all publicly available DNA sequences (Nucleic Acids Research, 2013 Jan;41(D1):D36-42). GenBank is part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration , which comprises the DNA DataBank of Japan (DDBJ), the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA), and GenBank at NCBI. These three organizations exchange data on a daily basis. A GenBank release occurs every two months and is available from the ftp site. The release notes for the current version of GenBank provide detailed information about the release and notifications of upcoming changes to GenBank. Release notes for previous GenBank releases are also available. GenBank growth statistics for both the traditional GenBank divisions and the WGS division are available from each release. GenBank growth statistics for both the traditional GenBank divisions and the WGS division are available from each release. An annotated sample GenBank record for a Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene demonstrates many of the features of the GenBank flat file format. The GenBank database is designed to provide and encourage access within the scientific community to the most up to date and comprehensive DNA sequence information. Therefore, NCBI places no restrictions on the use or distribution of the GenBank data. However, some submitters may claim patent, copyright, or other intellectual property rights in all or a portion of the data they have submitted. NCBI is not in a position to assess the validity of such claims, and therefore cannot provide comment or unrestricted permission concerning the use, copying, or distribution of the information contained in GenBank.

BioLINCC

BioLINCC
https://biolincc.nhlbi.nih.gov/

The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Biologic Specimen and Data Repository is the coming together of two entities: the NHLBI Biologic Specimen Repository (NHLBI Biorepository), managed by the NHLBI, Division of Blood Diseases and Resources (DBDR), Transfusion Medicine and Cellular Therapeutics Branch, and the NHLBI Data Repository, managed by the NHLBI, Division of Prevention and Population Sciences (DPPS), Epidemiology Branch. These two programs have always had a similar mission, namely to enhance and facilitate further research in cardiovascular, pulmonary and hematologic conditions by providing access to qualified investigators to stored biospecimen and data collections. The mission of BioLINCC is to facilitate access to, and maximize the scientific value of, the Biorepository and Data Repository and promote the availability and use of other NHLBI funded population-based biospecimen and data resources. This website serves to coordinate searches across data and biospecimen collections and to provide an electronic means for requests for additional information and the submission of requests for collections. Researchers wishing to apply to submit biospecimen collections to the NHLBI Biorepository for sharing with qualified investigators may also use this website to initiate that process. Note that this program does not provide research funding. However, data and biospecimen resources are provided at no cost to the investigator beyond actual costs incurred for shipping/handling and in the case of special specimen processing requirements. The BioLINCC Handbook provides a guide to accessing the NHLBI Biologic Specimen and Data Repository resources and information on all program activities.
