Open Science Data Framework

The Open Science Data Framework (OSDF) is a specialized document database that allows users to store, retrieve, query and track changes to data over time easily. Because the API uses JSON and REST, developers are able to use OSDF in the language of their choice because almost every language has support for communications via HTTP and working with JSON.

This project was supported by the National Institutes of Health.
