MitoCheck aims to integrate information on cellular function of human genes while giving access to supporting information such as microscopy images of phenotypes.

Image Data Resource
IDR is a prototype platform for publishing, mining and integrating bioimaging data at scale, following the Euro-BioImaging/ELIXIR imaging strategy using the OMERO and Bio-Formats open source software built by the Open Microscopy Environment. Deployed on an OpenStack cloud running on the EMBL-EBI’s Embassy resource, it includes image data linked to independent studies from genetic, RNAi, chemical, localisation and geographic high content screens, super-resolution microscopy, and digital pathology.
