Data description, presentation and search

Biobanks and other research databases share common characteristics and have similar requirements for optimal use. The content they house should be readily identifiable to researchers, and searching and discovery of data should be easily performed. Although some of the BioSHaRE data description, presentation and search tools were developed for genomic databases or biobanks/ cohort studies, the majority of our tools can be applied to a wide variety of research applications, and are complementary in application and utility. This broad application and the fact that they are open access gives our tools value to researchers beyond these initial target users.
