IDR uses OME’s Bio-Formats and OMERO tools to read, manage and serve data, and provide links to EMBL-EBI’s molecular and structural resources. The resource is built upon EMBL-EBI’s OpenStack-based Embassy infrastructure. All tools used for reading and converting metadata associated with each dataset and all scripts used to build the infrastructure are maintained and available. A parallel system that enables computational re-analysis of IDR data will be released soon.
The IDR includes a virtual analysis environment that provides full access to all data. Please contact us for an account.
Details on accessing the public IDR API are available under about/api.html.
The IDR Project PIs are Jason Swedlow (Dundee), Alvis Brazma (EMBL-EBI) and Rafael Carazo Salas. Construction of the IDR project was funded by the BBSRC (Ref: BB/M018423/1) as a collaboration between the OME Consortium at Dundee and EMBL-EBI. The IDR is part of several projects that have received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreements 688945 (Euro-BioImaging Prep Phase II), 653493 (Global BioImaging Project) and 654248 (CORBEL). For 2018-2021, dataset submission and publication is funded by the Wellcome Trust (Ref: 212962/Z/18/Z) and integration with EMBL-EBI's BioStudies and other resources is funded by the BBSRC (Ref: BB/R015384/1).
Currently, the IDR (version 0.6.5, released on 2019-03-19) contains 90.93 Tb of multi-dimensional image data consisting of 50 millions of individual 2D planes. IDR contains over a million different experiments. Data comes from studies on human, Drosophila, budding and fission yeast, and mouse cells and tissue. Imaging modalities represented so far include high content screens, time-lapse imaging, whole slide histopathology, and super-resolution microscopy. See the full list of published studies for more details.
