The heatmap below shows the availability scores we assigned to denote how completely a certain data modality is available and shared in the investigated cohort datasets. The corresponding criteria for score assignments are shown in the table below the heatmap.
The following table illustrates the criteria used to define the availability scores for each investigated data modality. Following clear curation criteria helps to make the scores more comparable and interpretable.
