Hi Martin,

I am sorry for the late reply. I am meeting Sarala later. So I will catch
up with her as you suggested. If it is useful for you I think we should add
to your list the life sciences resources we know are exposing datasets with
schema.org. I think we should be able to contribute with few more

Related to this topic, in March last year in one of our Bioschemas meetings
discussed the idea of creating a registry to facilitate the discover of
resources adopting bioschemas/schema.org types
We did agree not to create a new registry but enable our existing
registries (identifiers.org, biosharing.org, bio.tools, TeSS, biosamples,
...) to capture/expose how indexed resources support Bioschemas/Schema.org
types. I imagine you might aim to do something similar in re3data?

As far as I understand you are interested in resources describing just
datasets with schema.org. We are interested in resources which are indexing
more types than datasets (eg. tools, training materials, proteins, ...). So
for us is also important to capture other details like the schema.org types
and the bioschemas profiles supported.

Until we have the registries enabled I think in Bioschemas we should
capture this information in a simple list as you do. We just had a
Bioschemas meeting in Italy in the last two days and we wanted to show
which resources in the workshop adopted Bioschemas. We created this list
We are thinking to complete this list with all the resources that we know
adopted bioschemas. We are happy to add those that are focused on datasets
to you list as well.

BTW, I see in your list you use a column specific for re3data. As you might
know we have several catalogues (registries) indexing resources in life
sciences. Would it make more sense to use IDs that we have in our existing
registries besides the re3data or additional to re3data? using prefixes (eg
