The report about LSDB Archive has posted in Research Data at Springer Nature.

The report about Life Science Database Archive (LSDB Archive) , "What is involved in archiving life science datasets?" written by Shigeru Yatsuzuka, an NBDC researcher has posted in Research Data at Springer Nature.

[LSDB Cross Search] 6 databases have been added to Life Science Database Cross Search

Following 6 databases have been added to the search index of Life Science Database Cross Search.
  • [Pt_spiderBASE]: Pt_spiderBASE is a database for ESTs of the spider Parasteatoda tepidariorum, a model arthropod to study developmental biology, comparative embryology and evolutionary development.
  • [FAIRsharing.org]: This site for FAIRsharing.org is a registry site intended to promote data-sharing in the sciences, such as life, environmental, and biomedical sciences. It consists of "Standards", "Databases", "Policies", and "Collections" sections that catalog both in-house and crowd-sourced curated descriptions. The Biosharing.org (https: //biosharing.org) has been developed into the FAIRsharing.org in July, 2017.
  • [NBDC RDF Portal]: This is a portal site that integrates life science databases in RDF format. The portal was jointly developed by the JST National Bioscience Database Center (NBDC) and the Database Center for Life Science (DBCLS), Research Organization of Information and Systems. The DBCLS formulated guidelines for the construction of high quality RDF data (http://wiki.lifesciencedb.jp/mw/RDFizingDatabaseGuideline), and publishes only those data that meet a minimum level of quality for a highly reliable database. Users can browse the summaries of the data for the various databases. Data downloads and SPARQL (standard query language for RDF format data) searches are also possible.
  • [GlyTouCan]: GlyTouCan is an international repository of glycan structures. This database contains uncurated glycan structures ranging in resolution from monosaccharide composition to fully defined structures, as long as there are no inconsistencies in the structure. The database allows users to search by text, graphic input or motif, and browse using motif-list or glycan-list.

[LSDB Cross Search] 3 databases have been added to Life Science Database Cross Search

Following 3 databases have been added to the search index of Life Science Database Cross Search.
  • PHDB(timeseriesdb, morphologydb, PHML Model Database)
  • PHDB is an integrated database for human physiome and systems biology researches. It contains three databases:
    1) PHML Model Database, which stores a number of modules representing biological/physiological functions which are formulated by mathematical equations to describe dynamic changes of states. The models in the database are written in an XML format called "Physiological Hierachy ML (PHML)"
    2) Morphology Database, which provides datasets representing morphometric models of biological organs.
    3)Timeseries database, which includes dynamic data obtained from physiological and numerical experiments.
