This site and accompanying package are a resource for informing you what the latest version of each biological database is. Last updated on {{ site.data.versions.annotations.date }} (revision {{ site.data.versions.annotations.revision }}) by {{ site.data.versions.annotations.author }}.

This site also includes [Bioschemas](https://bioschemas.org/) annotations, which aims to improve the findability of life sciences resources such as datasets, software, and training materials. These annotations can either appear on the original site, or on a website (like this one) that indexes it or provides additional information. The further information here, for example, is the link to the BioRegistry. The JSON-LD annotation will make it easier for other tools to recognize the content of the table. This includes the [Google Dataset finder](https://datasetsearch.research.google.com/), besides Bioschemas itself.

Legend: 📥 means the resource reports the date of each release, 📅 means the date of release was inferred based on the date when the latest version was retrieved, 💡 means the date was inferred by the version string.

## Adding More Databases

More databases can be added by sending a pull request to [biopragmatics/bioversions](https://github.com/biopragmatics/bioversions) by following the [contribution guidelines](https://github.com/biopragmatics/bioversions#-contributing).

Databases are added by the following priority (high to low):

  1. By request or contribution

  2. Databases useful for the [PyOBO](https://github.com/pyobo/pyobo) project, aiming to convert all biomedical controlled vocabularies into OBO for general reuse

  3. Databases useful for the [Bio2BEL](https://github.com/bio2bel/bio2bel) project, aiming to convert all biological databases into the [Biological Expression Language](https://biological-expression-language.github.io/) for general reuse and Bio2BEL projects

  4. Databases appearing in the Bioregistry, OLS, OBO Foundry, or MIRIAM

  5. Databases tweeted by the International Society of Biocuration ([@biocurator](https://twitter.com/biocurator))

  6. Databases I’ve seen during project work

  7. Serendipity!

## Database Updates

The database is automatically updated daily thanks to scheduled workflows in GitHub Actions. The workflow’s configuration can be found [here](https://github.com/biopragmatics/bioversions/blob/main/.github/workflows/update.yml) and the last run can be seen [here](https://github.com/biopragmatics/bioversions/actions?query=workflow%3A%22Update+Database%22). Further, a [changelog](https://github.com/biopragmatics/bioversions/commits?author=actions-user) can be recapitulated from the commits of the GitHub Actions bot.
