Persistent identification for life science data
The core of the Registry is a catalogue of data collections (corresponding to controlled vocabularies, databases, ...), their URIs and the corresponding physical URLs (or resources). These resources are monitored daily to ensure data accessibility and the validity of the resolution mechanism.
Access to the Registry's dataset is made available via exports (XML and RDF) and Web Services (SOAP and REST).
All provided data and services are free for use by all.
