Genomic Data Sharing

Credit: NHGRI

NIAID supports and complies with the data sharing policies, including the NIH Genomic Data Sharing (GDS) Policy

Rapid and unrestricted sharing of data and resources is essential for advancing research on human health and infectious diseases. The utility of data and resources to the scientific community is largely dependent on how quickly these data are deposited into public databases, and whether the data are easy to find, accessible and can be re-used by others. NIAID expects rapid release of large-scale genomic data sets and anticipates that data generated will be made freely available via deposition into publicly accessible and searchable international databases, such as the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)’s GenBank and database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP), NIAID-funded databases such as the Bioinformatics Resource Centers (BRCs), or other databases designated and approved by NIAID.

In addition, NIAID encourages sharing of other data types generated with NIAID funding, such as other omics or immunological data.
