ready NanoMaterial Registry

Abbreviation:Nano Registry

General Information
By leveraging and developing a set of Minimal Information About Nanomaterials (MIAN), ontology and standards through a community effort, the Nanomaterials Registry has developed a data model for data collection and sharing in the nanotechnology field. It facilitates data validation and data quality improvement. It is a data-driven tool aimed at enabling researchers to close knowledge gap.
