ready Center for Expanded Data Annotation and Retrieval Workbench

Abbreviation:CEDAR Workbench

General Information
The Center for Expanded Data Annotation and Retrieval (CEDAR) Workbench is a database of metadata templates that define the data elements needed to describe particular types of biomedical experiments. The templates include controlled terms and synonyms for specific data elements. CEDAR is an end-to-end process that enables community-based organizations to collaborate to create metadata templates, investigators or curators to use the templates to define the metadata for individual experiments, and scientists to search the metadata to access and analyze the corresponding online datasets.
