Implementing Databases (2)
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.
