Discover is a free application designed to speed up research. It opens access to huge amounts of data from repositories and researchers. Then helps you keep track of the data you’re interested in, work with others to improve the metadata and get feedback on your data too.
We’re part of the consortium building the NIH Data Commons, a shared resource to make data more findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) and accelerate biomedical research. Our experience with Discover is helping shape the way we make finding data easier for biologists and data analysts.

Search through an ever-growing amount of data and find just what you need, thanks to standardised metadata and formatting.
Add descriptions, make suggestions and share ideas. (It’s a great way to make connections and find collaborators too.)
List your data and help others avoid duplication, as well as support new findings. You’ll learn how it’s used and ways to share it more effectively.
Save datasets and be notified of new updates and annotations.
Add details and metadata to help others understand data quality, type and uses.
Use our API to build open access search into your application.
Indexing the GigaDB repository on Repositive was a no-brainer to help boost its findability and accessibility.
By better connecting our datasets with users across the world, we’re maximising data re-use.
We want to make it quicker and easier to test hypotheses and develop new treatments. That’s why our application is free to use. So you can find and share data, make connections and even kick off new collaborations.
I recently used Repositive to access the Chinese Kadoori Project dataset. This not only enabled me to access their data and learn their protocols, it also made it easy for me to apply for and establish mutual collaboration with the researchers.
