Data available using BioGrid
BioGrid Australia provides researchers access to data in many disease types and data from disparate existing databases at many institutions.
There are two ways to find out what data is available in BioGrid. Use these methods to determine the databases you require access to for your project before you use the BioGrid online application system.
- List of databases – you can browse a list of the available databases by disease type or by institution and download the data dictionary and form (if available). To view this information on the BioGrid website select ‘Data’ from the menu and then list by disease type or institution. The data dictionary (DD) and data form (Data Form) can be downloaded by clicking on the links in the first column.
- Matching Matrix – allows you to identify which databases have individuals in common. The BioGrid Unique Subject Identifier is used to detect the number of individuals in common between the database you select and all other databases connected to the BioGrid platform. The Matching Matrix can assist you in applying for access to relevant databases for your research projects.
