Data Release Policy

Our goal is to make sequence data rapidly and broadly available to the scientific community as a community resource. It is our intention to publish the work of this project in a timely fashion, and we welcome collaborative interaction on the project and analyses.

However, considerable investment was made in generating these data and we ask that you respect rights of first publication and acknowledgment as outlined in the Toronto agreement [Toronto International Data Release Workshop Authors. Prepublication data sharing. Nature. 2009 Sep 10;461(7261):168-70].

By accessing these data, you agree not to publish any articles containing analyses of genes or genomic data on a whole genome or chromosome scale prior to initial publication by the Broad Institute and its collaborating scientists.

If you wish to make use of restricted data for publication or are interested in collaborating on the analyses of these data, please contact the project scientist or collaborators listed on the main page.

Any redistribution of these data should include the full text of the data use policy.
