CEDAR, one of the eleven BD2K centers of excellence, is working to make it easier for biomedical investigators to author metadata that are more complete and more comprehensive than is possible with manual methods. CEDAR makes it easy for scientists to use standard metadata templates and standard terms from well-recognized ontologies to fill in the templates. A database of previously entered metadata enables the system to use predictive data entry to guide its users in their work to author metadata. CEDAR should help to make online biomedical datasets more findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR), while facilitating the information-retrieval work performed by BioCADDIE by ensuring higher-quality metadata.
