The DrugBank database is a unique bioinformatics and cheminformatics resource that combines detailed drug (i.e. chemical, pharmacological and pharmaceutical) data with comprehensive drug target (i.e. sequence, structure, and pathway) information. The latest release of DrugBank (version 5.1.1, released 2018-07-03) contains 11,881 drug entries including 2,526 approved small molecule drugs, 1,184 approved biotech (protein/peptide) drugs, 129 nutraceuticals and over 5,751 experimental drugs. Additionally, 5,132 non-redundant protein (i.e. drug target/enzyme/transporter/carrier) sequences are linked to these drug entries. Each DrugCard entry contains more than 200 data fields with half of the information being devoted to drug/chemical data and the other half devoted to drug target or protein data.
Historical Climate Data (formerly: The National Climate Data and Information Archive - NCDC) is a web-based resource maintained by Environment and Climate Change Canada and the Meteorological Service of Canada. The site houses a number of statistical and data compilation and viewing tools. From the website, users can access historical climate data for Canadian locations and dates, view climate normals and averages, and climate summaries. A list of Canadian air stations and their meteorological reports and activities is also available, along with rainfall statistics for more than 500 locations across Canada. Users can also download the Canadian daily climate data for 2006/07. In addition, technical documentation is offered for data users to interpret the available data. Other documentation includes a catalogue of Canadian weather reporting stations, a glossary, and a calculation of the 1971 to 2000 climate normals for Canada. This resource carries authority and accuracy because it is maintained by a national government department and service. While the majority of the statistics are historical, the data is up-to-date and contains current and fairly recent climate data. This government resource is intended for an audience that has the ability and knowledge to interpret climatological data

By opening its data to everyone, Ville de Montréal allows it to be reused for various purposes, including commercial ones. The results of this reuse can then be shared in the community, creating a multiplier effect. The data released and reused thus generate benefits in the economic, cultural, social and technological spheres.
>>>!!!<<< 2017-06-02: We recently suffered a server failure and are working to bring the full ORegAnno website back online. In the meantime, you may download the complete database here: ; Data are also available through UCSC Genome Browser (e.g., hg38 -> Regulation -> ORegAnno) >>>!!!<<< The Open REGulatory ANNOtation database (ORegAnno) is an open database for the curation of known regulatory elements from scientific literature. Annotation is collected from users worldwide for various biological assays and is automatically cross-referenced against PubMED, Entrez Gene, EnsEMBL, dbSNP, the eVOC: Cell type ontology, and the Taxonomy database, where appropriate, with information regarding the original experimentation performed (evidence). ORegAnno further provides an open validation process for all regulatory annotation in the public domain. Assigned validators receive notification of new records in the database and are able to cross-reference the citation to ensure record integrity. Validators have the ability to modify any record (deprecating the old record and creating a new one) if an error is found. Further, any contributor to the database can comment on any annotation by marking errors, or adding special reports into function as they see fit. These features of ORegAnno ensure that the collection is of the highest quality and uniquely provides a dynamic view of our changing understanding of gene regulation in the various genomes.
Ocean Networks Canada maintains several observatories installed in three different regions in the world's oceans. All three observatories are cabled systems that can provide power and high bandwidth communiction paths to sensors in the ocean. The infrastructure supports near real-time observations from multiple instruments and locations distributed across the Arctic, NEPTUNE and VENUS observatory networks. These observatories collect data on physical, chemical, biological, and geological aspects of the ocean over long time periods, supporting research on complex Earth processes in ways not previously possible.

Biological collections are replete with taxonomic, geographic, temporal, numerical, and historical information. This information is crucial for understanding and properly managing biodiversity and ecosystems, but is often difficult to access. Canadensys, operated from the Université de Montréal Biodiversity Centre, is a Canada-wide effort to unlock the biodiversity information held in biological collections.
CEEHRC represents a multi-stage funding commitment by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and multiple Canadian and international partners. The overall aim is to position Canada at the forefront of international efforts to translate new discoveries in the field of epigenetics into improved human health. The two sites will focus on sequencing human reference epigenomes and developing new technologies and protocols; they will also serve as platforms for other CEEHRC funding initiatives, such as catalyst and team grants. The complementary reference epigenome mapping efforts of the two sites will focus on a range of common human diseases. The Vancouver group will focus on the role of epigenetics in the development of cancer, including lymphoma and cancers of the ovary, colon, breast, and thyroid. The Montreal team will focus on autoimmune / inflammatory, cardio-metabolic, and neuropsychiatric diseases, using studies of identical twins as well as animal models of human disease.
