Big Data to Knowledge Program Resources


Centers of Excellence for Big Data Computing

The Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Centers of Excellence have developed new approaches, methods, software tools and related resources including publications, data standards, and educational resources to advance Big Data Science in their relevant biomedical area of focus.



BD2K Training and Education

The Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Training activities were designed to improve big data skills of biomedical scientists and increase the number of biomedical data scientists. BD2K-funded grants have produced a number of educational resources to strengthen the role of data science in modern biomedical research.




Resource Indexing

The data discovery index (DataMed) prototype was developed through the BD2K biomedical and healthCAre Data Discovery Indexing Ecosystem project (bioCADDIE), and allows users to find and access biomedical datasets from multiple sources based on key attributes.

Learn how to apply the metadata standards developed by bioCADDIE to your own datasets.


Software & Analysis

Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) supported the development of software tools and methods to tackle data management, transformation, and analysis challenges in areas of high need to the biomedical research community.
