Data download

You can download the target-disease associations and the evidence used for the associations from the Data Download page.

This data is available as compressed JSON files and can also be obtained programmatically using the /public/association and /public/evidence REST API methods. Check Open Targets Platform REST API help page for more details.

Both association and evidence files available for download cannot be used to restore the application as they are not a database dump. These files are the product of a preprocessed export through the Open Targets Platform REST API using the Open Targets Python client.

These dump files are meticulously formatted to serve as inputs for your in-house tools: each line represents a fully dumped (serialised to a string) JSON-object independent of each other.

Head to the FAQs section if you want to spin your own instance of the Platform.
