Updated global navigation for the RBK site

Dec 6, 2021

The RBK Hub has updated the site to unify the navigation bar across all parts of www.rebuildingakidney.org. The navigation bar structure is designed for ease of access to different types of data and information. It is also aligned well with the GUDMAP navigation bar.

The following are the top-level menu items and what you can expect to find:

  • BROWSE DATA - Entry point to the data repo which highlights various options: SEARCH BY (by gene, by investigator, etc), MODALITY/MODES (imaging, transcriptomics, etc), VISUALIZATIONS options for mRNA-Seq and scRNA-Seq and LAB RESOURCES AND TOOLS (protocols, cell lines, antibodies, etc).
  • USING RBK - Links to documentation about using RBK.
  • RESOURCES - Request iPSC cell lines, learn about tools available in the community, get links to useful reference material from GUDMAP relevant to kidney researchers, etc.
  • CONSORTIUM - This section includes information specifically regarding the RBK Consortium as well as listings of RBK publications and RBK projects.
  • DASHBOARDS - Links here will take you to graphs and tables that summarize the available data and data submissions.
  • INTERNAL - For members of the RBK consortium, this section includes direct links for creating data records, links to internal collaboration websites and links to documentation for submitting data.
  • “Go to RID” search bar - Although this isn’t technically part of the navigation, it is a useful feature on the right side of the top menu bar that lets you enter an “RID” to go directly to a data record. RID stands for “Record ID”, the unique permanent identifier for all RBK data.

We hope this will help make the ReBuilding a Kidney website more useful for you. If you have feedback, please let us know via the Contact page!
