Reactome Resource of Faculty Guanming Wu on First List of Global Core Biodata Resources

The Global Biodata Coalition (GCBR) of research funders has recognized the Reactome Knowledgebase as one of just 37 resources worldwide whose long-term funding and sustainability are critical to life science and biomedical research. Reactome is a widely used online resource with over 14 million hits per month. It contains human cellular processes annotated at the molecular level coupled to cutting-edge tools for data analysis. Reactome is developed and managed by Guanming Wu, PhD and his group from the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE) in collaboration with teams at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, NYU Langone Health, and the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL). In addition to the Reactome Web site, more information can be found on its Twitter feed. The GCBR also provides a succinct summary of its scope and plans.
