Which public data sources are available in DISQOVER?

Methods for public data integration

Public data in DISQOVER refers to any freely and publicly available life science and healthcare data. There are two methods for integrating public data on your own DISQOVER instance, which can be used separately or combined: 

  • Integration through RDS data sets
  • Integration through Federation

Detailed information about both methods can be found in this article
