Workbench

Workbench

This Winter, the All of Us Research Program will provide registered data through the Researcher Workbench. To access this data, researchers must complete a thorough data access application process. Once approved, researchers will have access to the Researcher Workbench platform and tools. The application process will open once the Workbench becomes available.

Data Access Application Process

In order to register for the Workbench which hosts registered tier data, researchers will be required to complete the All of Us Research Program data access-process. A brief overview of the process is below.

REGISTER AS A RESEARCHER

Register yourself as an All of Us researcher.

COMPLETE ETHICS TRAINING

Complete the All of Us Research Ethics Training.

SIGN DATA USE AGREEMENT

Sign our data use agreement.

Sign up to receive updates on when the application process will be open.

Workbench

The Workbench platform and its suite of custom tools are available to authorized and approved All of Us researchers. In the Workbench, All of Us researchers can access registered tiered data, workspaces, the cohort builder tool, and an interactive notebook environment.

WORKSPACES

In order to conduct various research studies, All of Us researchers will be able to create project-specific workspaces and add collaborators to them. Each workspace will feature a description of the project and act as a home to save cohorts and analysis notebooks.

COHORT BUILDER

The Cohort Builder is a custom tool that gives researchers the autonomy to create, review, and annotate cohorts of the All of Us research dataset.

NOTEBOOKS

For more tech-savvy All of Us researchers, the Workbench has an integrated, web-based Jupyter Notebook environment to allow for high-powered query and analysis of the All of Us research dataset.

Data Access Tiers

There are different tiers of data accessible to researchers and the public. Why? This protects participants’ privacy and ensures that only registered and approved researchers are able to access the robust data for research purposes.

PUBLIC

The Public Tier Curated Data Repository (CDR) consists of anonymized, aggregate data only. The Data Browser and Data Snapshots display summarized overviews of research insights drawn from aggregated participant data. This aggregate data is available to everyone through public, interactive tools within the Research Hub. This data is not available for download.

REGISTERED

The Registered Tier Curated Data Repository (CDR) is only available to authorized and approved researchers. The Registered Tier CDR is more robust, and can be used for analysis within the Workbench.

The Registered Tier CDR is scheduled to be available this Winter.

Public level data is aggregate data only. The Data Browser and Survey Explorer are accessible to everyone to explore the anonymized, public facing data sets.

The Workbench platform and its suite of custom tools are available to approved All of Us researchers. In the Workbench, All of Us researchers can access Registered Tier data, workspaces, the Cohort Builder tool, and an interactive notebook environment.

WORKSPACES

In order to conduct various research studies, All of Us researchers can create project-specific workspaces and add collaborators to them. Each workspace will feature a description of the project and act as a home to save cohorts and analysis notebooks.

COHORT BUILDER

The Cohort Builder is a custom tool that gives researchers the autonomy to create, review, and annotate cohorts of the All of Us research dataset.

DATASET BUILDER

Datasets are analysis-ready tables that can be exported to analysis tools such as Notebooks. Researchers can build and preview a dataset for one or more cohorts by selecting the desired concepts sets and values for the concepts.

NOTEBOOKS

The Workbench hosts an integrated, web-based Jupyter Notebook environment so that more code-savvy researchers can perform high-powered queries and analysis within the All of Us research dataset.

PHENOTYPE LIBRARY

The Phenotype Library contains pre-built cohorts based on previously published computational phenotype algorithms. Researchers can then analyze the data in Notebooks or use the pre-built cohorts in their own workspaces.

The All of Us Research Program is now accepting applications from researchers across the world to use the Workbench tools and protected dataset.
