Objective is to make data more available and easier to use at a single location. As set out in the concept of "open data", we attempt to facilitate the use of open licenses and to increase the supply of machine-readable raw data.
The project analyzes educational processes in Germany from early childhood to late adulthood. The National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) has been set up to find out more about the acquisition of education in Germany, to plot the consequences of education for individual biographies, and to describe central educational processes and trajectories across the entire life span. Such an interdisciplinary consortium of research institutes, researcher groups, and research. personalities has been assembled in Bamberg. In addition, the competencies and experiences with longitudinal research available at numerous other locations have been networked to form a cluster of excellence.
The World Atlas of Language Structures (WALS) is a large database of structural (phonological, grammatical, lexical) properties of languages gathered from descriptive materials (such as reference grammars) by a team of 55 authors (many of them the leading authorities on the subject).
<<<<< ----- !!! The data is in the phase of migration to another system. Therefore the repository is no longer available. This record is out-dated.; 2020-10-06 !!! ----- >>>>> Due to the changes at the individual IGS analysis centers during these years the resulting time series of global geodetic parameters are inhomogeneous and inconsistent. A geophysical interpretation of these long series and the realization of a high-accuracy global reference frame are therefore difficult and questionable. The GPS reprocessing project GPS-PDR (Potsdam Dresden Reprocessing), initiated by TU München and TU Dresden and continued by GFZ Potsdam and TU Dresden, provides selected products of a homogeneously reprocessed global GPS network such as GPS satellite orbits and Earth rotation parameters.
>>>!!!<<< The repository is no longer available. >>>!!!<<< C3-Grid is an ALREADY FINISHED project within D-Grid, the initiative to promote a grid-based e-Science framework in Germany. The goal of C3-Grid is to support the workflow of Earth system researchers. A grid infrastructure will be implemented that allows efficient distributed data processing and inter-institutional data exchange. Aim of the effort was to develop an infrastructure for uniform access to heterogeneous data and distributed data processing. The work was structured in two projects funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The first project was part of the D-Grid initiative and explored the potential of grid technology for climate research and developed a prototype infrastructure. Details about the C3Grid architecture are described in “Earth System Modelling – Volume 6”. In the second phase "C3Grid - INAD: Towards an Infrastructure for General Access to Climate Data" this infrastructure was improved especially with respect to interoperability to Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF). Further the portfolio of available diagnostic workflows was expanded. These workflows can be re-used now in adjacent infrastructures MiKlip Evaluation Tool ( and as Web Processes within the Birdhouse Framework ( The Birdhouse Framework is now funded as part of the European Copernicus Climate Change Service ( managed by ECMWF and will be extended to provide scalable processing services for ESGF hosted data at DKRZ as well as IPSL and BADC.
Human biomaterial banks (short: biobanks) are collections of human body substances (i.e. blood, DNA, urine or tissue) connected with disease specific information. This allow for research of relations between deseases and underlying (molecular) modifications and paves the way for developing target-oriented therapies ("personalized medicine"). The biobank material arises from samples taken for therapeutical or diagnostic reasons or is extracted in the context of clinical trials. An approval for usage by the patient is always needed prior to any research activities.
<<<!!!<<< This repository is no longer available. >>>!!!>>> A human interactome map. The sequencing of the human genome has provided a surprisingly small number of genes, indicating that the complex organization of life is not reflected in the gene number but, rather, in the gene products – that is, in the proteins. These macromolecules regulate the vast majority of cellular processes by their ability to communicate with each other and to assemble into larger functional units. Therefore, the systematic analysis of protein-protein interactions is fundamental for the understanding of protein function, cellular processes and, ultimately, the complexity of life. Moreover, interactome maps are particularly needed to link new proteins to disease pathways and the identification of novel drug targets.
BSRN is a project of the Radiation Panel (now the Data and Assessment Panel) from the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX) under the umbrella of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). It is the global baseline network for surface radiation for the Global limate Observing System (GCOS), contributing to the Global Atmospheric Watch (GAW), and forming a ooperative network with the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change NDACC).
The company RapidEye AG of Brandenburg brought on 29 August 2008 five satellites into orbit that can be aligned within a day to any point on Earth. The data are interesting for a number of large and small companies for applications from harvest planning to assessment of insurance claims case of natural disasters. Via the Rapid Eye Science Archive (RESA) science users can receive, free of charge, optical image data of the RapidEye satellite fleet. Imagery is allocated based on a proposal to be submitted via the RESA Portal which will be evaluated by independent experts.
The repository contains the complete model of the Bern campaign; only the upper part of the vault could not be measured due to renovation works carried out on the dome at the time of the campaign.
The International Service of Geomagnetic Indices (ISGI) is in charge of the elaboration and dissemination of geomagnetic indices, and of tables of remarkable magnetic events, based on the report of magnetic observatories distributed all over the planet, with the help of ISGI Collaborating Institutes. The interaction between the solar wind, including plasma and interplanetary magnetic field, and the Earth's magnetosphere results in a transfer of energy and particles inside the magnetosphere. Solar wind characteristics are highly variable, and they have actually a direct influence on the shape and size of the magnetosphere, on the amount of transferred energy, and on the way this energy is dissipated. It is clear that the great diversity of sources of magnetic variations give rise to a great complexity in ground magnetic signatures. Geomagnetic indices aim at describing the geomagnetic activity or some of its components. Each geomagnetic index is related to different phenomena occurring in the magnetosphere, ionosphere and deep in the Earth in its own unique way. The location of a measurement, the timing of the measurement and the way the index is calculated all affect the type of phenomenon the index relates to. The IAGA endorsed geomagnetic indices and lists of remarkable geomagnetic events constitute unique temporal and spatial coverage data series homogeneous since middle of 19th century.
The German Neuroinformatics Node's data infrastructure (GIN) services provide a platform for comprehensive and reproducible management and sharing of neuroscience data.

The JenAge Ageing Factor Database AgeFactDB is aimed at the collection and integration of ageing phenotype and lifespan data. Ageing factors are genes, chemical compounds or other factors such as dietary restriction, for example. In a first step ageing-related data are primarily taken from existing databases. In addition, new ageing-related information is included both by manual and automatic information extraction from the scientific literature. Based on a homology analysis, AgeFactDB also includes genes that are homologous to known ageing-related genes. These homologs are considered as candidate or putative ageing-related genes.
Three parts of a database provide published and unpublished chemical analysis results of archaeological ceramics. These are the results of forty years of applying WD-XRF and other mineralogical and physical laboratory methods to the analysis of sherds from excavations and museums. Drawing on some 30,000 analyses from research projects in Europe, Turkey, the near East, and Sudan, the part published here covers the results of three long-term projects: Early pottery in Thessaly, Greece (1,305 records), Firmalampen and other Roman lamps (1,666 records), and Roman and other pottery produced in Central Europe (4,043 records). This collated information provides an opportunity to work directly on published and unpublished data. These can be used as chemical reference groups for comparison for fine ware classification and in provenance studies.
