Data Access Guidelines

The unpublished data repository may contain abalone genome, transcriptomes and gene sets that are not yet published. These sequences are provided to the community to allow research to proceed unhindered by publication delays and to promote collaboration between community members.

By accessing these resources you agree to abide by the Fort Lauderdale and Toronto agreements. Data is made available by the producers with the explicit intent to publish analyses. Members of the abalomics community resource website must request the permission of the data producers to use and publish pre-published data with an appropriate citation. Journals and reviewers are to make sure that articles are published following the guidelines. Release to GenBank, Ensembl or other similar repositories does not constitute publication. Please contact us (or the unpublished data repository producer indicated with the sequence) if you wish to use these sequences in published analyses.

Breaching these guidelines may result the Abalomics Community Portal site resources becoming restricted. Please follow these guidelines to assist us in continuing to provide this resource to abalone researchers.
