The CDE (Common Data Element) Browser is the primary starting point for exploring the contents of the cancer Data Standards Repository (caDSR). CDE Browser supports searching for, downloading, and sharing of CDEs within or across contexts. You can also share CDEs with caDSR Form Builder to build and edit forms.
- Data Element Search finds CDEs via scope options and a keyword search across certain caDSR database fields.
- For a more targeted search, additional search criteria are available for caDSR database fields.
- Public ID Search finds CDEs via one or more public IDs and a keyword search across certain caDSR database fields.
