Many consortia (such as TCGA, GTEx, and TARGET) have "controlled data". These controlled data are safeguarded by specific data archives (such as EGA and dbGaP) and are only provided to qualified and approved investigators. To get access to these controlled data, researchers need to submit an application to the appropriate Data Access Committee (DAC) and provide proposals as to how the data will be stored and analyzed, and what research questions will be addressed. dbGaP archive requires each external collaborating side to file an independent application to their corresponding signing officer within their institute.
OmicSoft strictly follows data policies defined by each data provider, and only share genomics results with partners under the terms defined in the data co-application.
If you are interested in filing a data co-application with OmicSoft to access controlled Lands or Land data, please submit a request to email@example.com to get a data application instruction package.
