The objective of EXCELERATE Deliverable 1.3 is the development of a discovery portal (bio.tools ) built upon a federated curation of a registry of key software resources for 1 bioinformatics worldwide. The core aim is to provide a practical portal that will help scientists with resource discovery and interoperability. Four reports (D1.1 - D1.4) describe the portal: ● M12: prototyping†of portal software and registry data model, addition of seed content ● M24: consolidation†of software features

We have further improved the model, ontology and software, whilst cleaning and more than doubling the registry content volume, achieving "near enough" comprehensive coverage of prevalent tools as envisioned in D1.2. This deliverable report describes work done with ELIXIR-EXCELERATE resources. Design and development aspects include: ● production of a major new release of the stable data model (biotoolsSchema 3.0.0) which simplifies the previous stable version 2.0 (described in D1.2) whilst extending the functionality ● the application of the "respectable beta" Tool Information Standard (see D1.5), consolidated from the prototype (see D1.2), to drive content quality improvement in bio.tools ● 3 new EDAM ontology releases ● revision of the client and server-side software including conformance to biotoolsSchema 3.0.0 Operational aspects include: ● registry growth to 11,479 entries (was 5,952 in D1.2) refactored to the model and including major clean-up and improvements guided by the Tool Information Standard ● 214,771 aggregated annotations on tools (was 97,262 in D1.2) ● content contributor growth to 800 (was 537 in D1.2), following the [...]
