ready Neuroscience Information Framework Standard Ontology


General Information
NIF Standard ontology (NIFSTD) is a core component of Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF) project (http://neuinfo.org), a semantically enhanced portal for accessing and integrating neuroscience data, tools and information. NIFSTD includes a set of modular ontologies that provide a comprehensive collection of terminologies to describe neuroscience data and resources.

Implementing Databases (2)
Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF)
NIF maintains the largest searchable collection of neuroscience data, the largest catalog of biomedical resources, and the largest ontology for neuroscience on the web.

SciCrunch resource registry is the new name of the NIF registry. SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis.
