Global Core Biodata Resources
The GBC defines biodata resources as any biological, life science, or biomedical database that archives research data generated by scientists, or functions as a knowledgebase by adding value to scientific data by aggregation, processing, and expert curation. Global Core Biodata Resources are biodata resources that are of fundamental importance to the wider biological and life sciences community and the long term preservation of biological data. They:
- provide free and open access to their data,
- are used extensively both in terms of the number and distribution of their users,
- are mature and comprehensive,
- are are considered authoritative in their field,
- are of high scientific quality, and
- provide a professional standard of service delivery.
