NIH 3D Print Exchange

Few scientific 3D-printable models are available online, and the expertise required to generate and validate such models remains a barrier. The NIH 3D Print Exchange eliminates this gap with an open, comprehensive, and interactive website for searching, browsing, downloading, and sharing biomedical 3D print files, modeling tutorials, and educational material.

Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) Data Portal

The Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) analyzes cancer biospecimens by mass spectrometry, characterizing and quantifying their constituent proteins, or proteome. Mass spectrometry enables highly specific identification of proteins and proteoforms, accurate relative quantitation of protein abundance in contrasting biospecimens, and the localization of post-translational protein modifications, such as phosphorylation, on a protein’s sequence.-

The CPTAC Data Portal is the centralized repository for the dissemination of proteomic data collected by the Proteome Characterization Centers (PCCs) for the CPTAC program. All data is freely available to the public, subject to the data use guidelines.

CGCI & TARGET datasets

OCG employs stringent human subjects’ protection and data access policies to protect the privacy and confidentiality of the research participants. Depending on the risk of patient identification, OCG programs’ data is available to the scientific community in two tiers: open or controlled access. Both types of data can be accessed through its corresponding OCG program-specific data matrix.

Repository for Molecular Brain Neoplasia Data (REMBRANDT)

The REMBRANDT data portal provides researchers with access to data characterizing human brain neoplasias, including astrocytoma, GBM, oligodendroglioma, and other less-well-defined types (mixed, unknown, unclassified) as well as normal controls. The portal contains subject-annotation data focusing on survival for 668 subjects and two sets of microarray-based data sets, the first with copy-number data mapped to 241 subjects and the second with gene-expression data mapped to 579 subjects. A joint initiative of NCI and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), REMBRANDT is a project of the NCI Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis (DCTD) Cancer Diagnosis Program.

Pathway Interaction Database (PID)

Developed by NCI CBIIT in collaboration with the Nature Publishing Group (NPG), the PID provides researchers with information about known biomolecular interactions and cellular processes assembled into signaling pathways. It contains data describing 137 human pathways curated by NCI and NPG as well as 322 human pathways imported from Biocarta/Reactome. Pathway categories are provided courtesy of the Rat Genome Database  Pathway Ontology.

National Biomedical Imaging Archive (NBIA)

The NCI CBIIT instance of NBIA is an image repository that provides researchers with access to medical imaging libraries (also known as "collections") obtained from patients evaluated for multiple types of cancer (or, in one case, osteoarthritis). Images are stored in the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard and accompanied by image mark ups, annotations, and metadata. A wide range of imaging modalities is represented in the collections: computed radiography (CR), computed tomography (CT), digital radiography (DX), hard copy (HC), histopathology, magnetic resonance (MR), nuclear medicine (NM), ophthalmic photography (OP), presentation state (PR), positron emission tomography (PT), radiographic imaging (conventional film/screen) (RG), radiotherapy dose (RTDOSE), radiotherapy plan (RTPLAN), radiotherapy treatment record (RTRECORD), radiotherapy structure set (RTSTRUCT), secondary capture (SC), SR document, ultrasound (US), and X-ray angiography (XA).

cancer Nanotechnology Laboratory (caNanoLab) Portal

The NCI CBIIT instance of caNanoLab is a nanoparticle annotation and data-sharing portal that provides researchers with data relating to the characterization of nanoparticle samples, protocols involving nanoparticles, and associated publications. It was developed for the NCI Nano Alliance, part of the NCI Center for Strategic Scientific Initiatives. The portal contains data describing a total of 989 samples of 17 distinct nanomaterial entities: biopolymers, carbon black particles, carbon nanotubes, carbon particles, dendrimers, emulsions, fullerenes, liposomes, metal oxides, metal particles, metalloids, nanohorns, nanorods, nanoshells, polymers, quantum dots, and silica particles. Sample characterizations include these information elements:

cancer Models Database (caMOD)

The NCI CBIIT instance of caMOD is a publicly accessible database that provides researchers with detailed information about animal models of human cancers. It was developed in collaboration with the Mouse Models of Human Cancer Consortium (MMHCC) in the Division of Cancer Biology. The database contains 6,084 records. Species represented are Mus musculus, Rattus norvegicus, Rattus rattus, Danio rerio, Felis catus, Canis familiarus, Capra hircus, Mesocricetus auratus, Equus caballus, Oryctolagus cuniculus, and Ovis aries. Information elements include organism, strain, genetic profile, histopathology, derived cell lines, images, carcinogenic agents, and therapeutic trials in which the models were used.

Cancer Genome Workbench (CGWB)

With the NCI CBIIT instance of CGWB, researchers can visualize and analyze in an integrated manner, somatic-mutation, gene-expression, copy-number variation, next-generation sequencing, and methylation data generated by multi-platform genome-wide assays. CGWB provides access to data drawn from a number of projects including The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), the Therapeutically Applicable Research to Generate Effective Treatments (TARGET), the Tumor Sequencing Project (TSP) , and the Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer (COSMIC) , as well as data relating to the NCI60 cell lines. The application offers investigators three main analytical views: an integrated view using the University of California at Santa Cruz Genome Browser; a heat-map view that associates gene-e

caArray Data Portal

caArray is an open-source, web and programmatically accessible microarray data management system that supports the annotation of microarray data using MAGE-TAB and web-based forms. Data and annotations may be kept private to the owner, shared with user-defined collaboration groups, or made public. The NCI instance of caArray hosts many cancer-related public datasets available for download.
