• Rosette chart in OmicsDI

    Rosette chart is a feature that shows multiple different normalized metrics of it’s dataset, including Reanalyses, Citations, Views, Downloads and Connections. With this feature, we can see how much attention people are giving to this dataset by just a quick look. The chart can be found at the search’s result: Or in the dataset’s details page: The colour of each of the leaves in the flower is representing a different type of the dataset metrics:
  • Claiming datasets in OmicsDI

    One of the first request OmicsDI team (January/2017) received after the official release of the resource was the possibility to login into the system and associated to the user the related public datasets. The original request was informally made by Professor Rob Beynon of Liverpool University (@astacus) and replied by Laurent Gatto @lgatt0 . try @OmicsDI. That should do it, I believe — Laurent Gⓐtt⓪ (@lgatt0) January 3, 2017
  • Filtering search results

    The search results can be filtered or refined using different filters or terms (Figure 1). The OmicsDI web application supports at the moment nine different refinements: Omics Type, repository/database, Organisms, Tissue, diseases, Modifications (proteomics), Instruments and platforms, Publication data, Technology type. Figure 1: Filtering results of Search in the Browse Page Filter Box Figure 2: Tissue Filter Box Each Filter Box shows the number of datasets within each category (e.
  • Searching in OmicsDI

    The main goal of the Omics Discovery Index is to provide a platform for searching and linking omics public data. OmicsDI has implemented a unique and novel Search Engine for omics datasets including public and protected data. The OmicsDI Search Box Figure 1: OmicsDI Search Box The OmicsDI Search Box is the main component to searching in OmicsDI. The user can type a set of keywords that will enable the system to find the datasets containing those keywords.
  • Navigating Omics from the home page

    The OmicsDI Home Page provides different blocks for navigating through the datasets, some of them are: 2D WordCloud; the species/organism/diseases Bubble Chart, repository/omics Bar Chart, Latest Datasets List, Most Accessed Datasets List, Datasets per year List. All the charts allow the user to search the data using the specific attribute. These boxes also act as a statistic component of the resource: for example, the pie chart shows how many datasets for each repository and omics the resource contains.
