Research projects can result in really great databases or other resources, but what happens when the research funding runs out? asks Rochelle Long at the NIGMS Feedback Loop.

According to the program announcement, eligible resources "should be of the highest technical quality and very broadly accessible to the relevant community" and may include maintaining databases, libraries, repositories, or software, among others.
