Definition Service that partners with the community t Service that partners with the community to expose and simultaneously drill down into individual databases and data sets and return relevant content. This type of content, part of the so called "hidden Web," is typically not indexed by existing web search engines. Every record links back to the originating site. In order for NIF to directly query these independently maintained databases and datasets, database providers must register their database or dataset with the NIF Data Federation and specify permissions. Databases are concept mapped for ease of sharing and to allow better understanding of the results. Learn more about registering your resource, Search results are displayed under the Data Federation tab and are categorized by data type and nervous system level. In this way, users can easily step through the content of multiple resources, all from the same interface. Each federated resource individually displays their query results with links back to the relevant datasets within the host resource. This allows users to take advantage of additional views on the data and tools that are available through the host database. The NIF site provides tutorials for each resource, indicated by the "Professor Icon" professor icon showing users how to navigate the results page once directed there through the NIF. Additionally, query results may be exported as an Excel document. Note: NIF is not responsible for the availability or content of these external sites, nor does NIF endorse, warrant or guarantee the products, services or information described or offered at these external sites. Integrated Databases: Theses "virtual" databases created by NIF and other partners combine related data indexed from multiple databases and combine them into one view for easier browsing. * Integrated Animal View * Integrated Brain Gene Expression View * Integrated Disease View * Integrated Nervous System Connectivity View * Integrated Podcasts View * Integrated Software View * Integrated Video View * Integrated Jobs * Integrated Blogs For a listing of the Federated Databases see, or refer to the "Resources Listed by NIF Data Federation" table below. isted by NIF Data Federation" table below.
