Biosharing Catalogue of Standards

The BioSharing catalogue aims to: 1 centralize community-developed bioscience standards linking to policies other portals open access resources and lists of tools and databases implementing the standards; 2. develop and maintain a set of criteria for assessing the usability and popularity of the standards also the interoperability and relations among them; 3. foster interoperability addressing overlaps and duplication of efforts that hamper their wider uptake and interfere with the creation of standards-compliant systems.Research community funding agencies and journals participate in the development of reporting standards for the bioscience domain to ensure that shared experiments are reported with enough information to be comprehensible and (in principle) reproducible compared or integrated. Similar trends in both the regulatory arena and commercial science.Proliferation of standards is a positive sign of stakeholders engagement but how much do we know about these standards? Which ones are mature and stable enough to use or recommend? Which tools and databases implement which standard? Etc...The BioSharing catalogue classifies standards into three types:* reporting requirements (minimal information checklists to report of the same core set of information)* terminological artifacts (such as controlled vocabularies and ontologies to describe the information)* exchange formats (to communicate the information)You can sort columns and browse the reporting guidelines content or you can view all the standards or reporting guidelines or terminological artifacts or exchange formats only.Contribute and help us to build the catalogue.
