An Online Clearinghouse for Bioinformatics Software Sharing and Evaluation
Project Award Date: 09-29-2006
The registry will help prevent the duplication of comparable tools and publicize technical developments. It will collect user feedback and provide reliable cross-platform documentation.
After testing is complete, all K-INBRE (Kansas- Idea Network of Biomedical Research Excellence) participants and other Central States INBRE institutions will have access on a password-protected registration basis. A successful beta test would further broaden access to academic institutions on a national scale, subject to registration and verification of academic status. Developers of a given tool could remove access to that tool and any associated documentation in the event of an anticipated commercialization initiative. The Clearinghouse would be housed on an existing K-INBRE-funded server.
