LIVIVO is an interdisciplinary search engine for literature and information in the field of life sciences. It is run by ZB MED – Information Centre for Life Sciences. LIVIVO automatically searches for the terms you enter in a central index of all the databases.
The ZB MED Searchportal already provides a large amount of research data from DataCite data centres (e.g. Beijing Genomics Institute, Natural Environment Research Council) in the field of life sciences. These can be searched directly using the "Documenttype=research data" filter. A further integration of data from life science data repositories is planned.
LIVIVO combines the former ZB MED search portals MEDPILOT (2003 to 2015) and GREENPILOT (2009 to 2015), both of which were funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). These two projects also formed part of the Pact for Research and Innovation run by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). LIVIVO builds upon the technology and content of these two projects to create an even better search experience.
