Abstract

Summary: The vast, uncoordinated proliferation of bioinformatics resources (databases, software tools, training materials etc.) makes it difficult for users to find them. To facilitate their discovery, various services are being developed to collect such resources into registries. We have developed BioCIDER, which, rather like online shopping ‘recommendations’, provides a contextualization index to help identify biological resources relevant to the content of the sites in which it is embedded.
