Objectives

The purpose of the Information Center is to broadly support life science research by promoting the effective use of NBRP core facilities’ bioresources through consolidation and provision of information on the bioresource collections’ locations, scientific knowledge of the resources, genomic information, and other essential information.There are three key focuses for the implementation of this program: (1) comprehensive collection of information, (2) development of a database for each resource, and (3) effective distribution of information to users.

The Information Center has already made publicly available the information on the bioresources of all core facilities that participated in Phase 1 (2002-2006) and Phase 2 (2007-2011) of the NBRP. In Phase 3 (2012-2016), the Information Center is continuing to provide this information, and is endeavoring to support a positive growth cycle between the resources and research by serving as a nexus that links the user community with the resource provider.

To date, on average, 200,000 users access the database of 6.2million bioresources every month, and some 8,700 papers have been published on the results of studies that used the NBRP’s collection of bioresources and information.

This program also covers the Information Center’s activities pertaining to the Great Ape Information Network (GAIN) and its activities as Japan’s node for the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF).
