ready DatA Tag Suite

Abbreviation: DATS

General Information
DatA Tag Suite (DATS) is the model developed by the NIH BD2K bioCADDIE project ( for the DataMed Data Discovery Index prototype being developed. DataMed is for data what PubMed has been for scientific literature and DATS is defined as similar to the JATS format.

Structural Biology Data Grid
The Structural Biology Data Grid (SBGrid-DG) community-driven repository to preserve primary experimental datasets that support scientific publications. The SBGrid Data Bank is an open source research data management system enabling Structural Biologists to preserve x-ray diffraction data and to make it accessible to the broad research community.

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. DataMed indexes the core metadata available for most datasets, but it offers enhanced search functions when repositories provide additional metadata.

Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) Portal
The CONP portal is a web interface for the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) to facilitate open science in the neuroscience community. CONP simplifies global researcher access and sharing of datasets and tools. The portal internalizes the cycle of a typical research project: starting with data acquisition, followed by processing using already existing/published tools, and ultimately publication of the obtained results including a link to the original dataset.
