Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) grantees developed a series of resources for the biomedical research and data science communities to use big data to answer biomedical research questions. Under current efforts to make the products of BD2K research usable, discoverable, and disseminated to the biomedical research community, the NIH Office of Strategic Coordination (OSC) released a webpage with direct hyperlinks to the resources developed through BD2K funding. The BD2K resource page will be updated periodically and populated with new resources as they become available.
