New Resource: GIDEON

Posted in Databases Resources

GIDEON (Global Infectious Disease and Epidemiology Network) database is now available through DML, thanks to the suggestion of a GUMC student.
GIDEON has two main components:

  1. The infectious disease module helps you to diagnose, treat, and track information on over 350 infectious diseases from around the globe.
  2. Microbiology module allows you to identify or browse bacteria, micobacteria, and yeasts.

GIDEON’s global data sources adhere to the standards of Evidence Based Medicine. Over 21,000 notes with 3.6 million words of text outline the status of specific infections within each country. Also featured are over 4,000 images, 31,000 graphs, 354 interactive maps and more than 445,000 linked references.
