NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The UK's National Cancer Research Institute has launched a free web portal that gives researchers access to international research data.
The NCRI's Oncology Information Exchange, or ONIX, enables scientists and clinicians to find cancer-related data and information from genomics studies and clinical trials.
ONIX allows users to search cancer-related databases and includes information about what research is being carried out by which researchers.
The information available through the portal is aimed at reducing duplication of research efforts across the globe, NCRI said.
NCRI plans to refine the ONIX portal based on user feedback, and will continue to develop the system by increasing the content, including databases and information about organizations and resources.
