Over the last six years, the interagency Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) has driven data-centric integration in materials sciences and engineering. This focus includes development of diverse data repositories and computational hubs that significantly advance opportunities for collaboration and federated data sharing. Our participation in the Materials Data Infrastructure Consortium has helped coordinate development efforts and enhance integration of materials data resources. The flexibility of the SciServer platform allows MEDE-DSC users to easily use RESTful APIs to leverage the gamut of MGI resources.
