PIC-SURE Open Access vs. PIC-SURE Authorized Access

PIC-SURE provides two ways to search: PIC-SURE Open Access and PIC-SURE Authorized Access. PIC-SURE Open Access enables the user to explore aggregate-level data without any dbGaP data authorizations. PIC-SURE Authorized Access feature allows the user to explore participant-level data and requires authorization to access at least one study through an active dbGaP Data Access Request (DAR).
