AHED - Pilot project for Astrobiology
Central, high quality, long-term searchable repository for astrobiologically relevant data including mineralogy and biomineralogy, morphological, textural, chemical, isotopic and crystallographic information.
This database stores sequencing data and metadata associated with in vitro evolution experiments in which RNA sequences are selected to perform a particular functional.

Pavillon Lake Research Project
The Pavilion Lake Research Project (PLRP) is an international, multi-disciplinary, science and exploration effort to explain the origin of freshwater microbialites in Pavilion Lake, British Columbia, Canada. The database stores metadata for microbialite and water samples (and associated subsamples, replicates) collected by submersibles at Pavilion Lake, along with images of the microbialite samples.
