in development DataMed

General Information
DataMed is a prototype biomedical data search engine. Its goal is to discover data sets across data repositories or data aggregators. In the future it will allow searching outside these boundaries. DataMed supports the NIH-endorsed FAIR principles of Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Reusability of datasets with current functionality assisting in finding datasets and providing access information about them. The data repositories covered in this initial release have been selected by the bioCADDIE team and represent only a small sample of biomedical data. Many highly relevant data sets have not yet been indexed. Please provide suggestions on data repositories that DataMed should cover. The translation of user queries into structured data used in the search is being refined. Advanced search allows users to structure their queries. Some DataMed search features are not yet available for all data. Please provide feedback about the quality of search results. DataMed indexes the core metadata available for most datasets, but it offers enhanced search functions when repositories provide additional metadata. The Data Tag Suite (DATS) metadata specification has evolved with input from the community and will include a annotated serialization. You can use the web interface and provide us feedback here about your search experience. This is a prototype in development and your valuable suggestions and comments will help us to make the system better.
