This week, the NIH unveiled two valuable resources for the biomedical research community:
The new Biomedical Data Science website was launched on Apr. 13 as part of the NIH’s push to harness the potential of computational data to advance biomedical research. The new site features information on the following NIH-wide efforts:
- Data Science Community: Read about the Community’s mission, recent news and events, community engagement, training, and the NIH Data Science Workforce Development Center. Here you can also access the Input | Output blog, a Community news and discussion forum that covers topics as wide ranging as the use of Cloud services for storing and analyzing protected data to updates on Community events.
- The Commons: Learn about this shared computing environment intended to improve access and use of shared digital research data.
- BD2K: The Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative was launched in 2012 to support new approaches to improving access to Big Data. The new BD2K site provides links to FOAs as well as information on BD2K working groups and news related to the initiative.
