Online Registry of Biomedical Informatics Tools (ORBIT)

The Online Registry of Biomedical Informatics Tools (ORBIT) was launched in 2010 as a resource for registering and finding informatics resources (tools, data sets, listservs, etc). It is hosted at NLM and considered a resource by and for the informatics community. To provide for community support, ORBIT was developed using the open source content management platform Joomla. ORBIT allows researchers to submit information about and pointers to resources in the form shown in Figure 1.
