Data Usage Policy (January, 2014)
The data from the Aphanomyces genomes project, included in AphanoDB, are being made available by the LRSV before scientific publication. The raw data have been made by the CNS-Genoscope and the GET-Genotoul Platform of Toulouse. Analyses have been performed during a collaborative work between the LRSV, the CNS-Genoscope and the Bioinformatic Platform of Toulouse in order to give data available to the scientific community as soon as possible with the reasonable expectation that the collaborators and the LRSV will publish their results without concerns about potential preemption by other groups that did not participate in the effort.
These pre-publication data are preliminary and may contain errors. By accessing these data, you agree not to publish any articles containing analyses of genes or genomic data on a whole genome prior to publication by LRSV and its collaborators of its comprehensive genome analysis. These restrictions will be lifted on the publication of the whole genome description. The principal collaborator of this project is Elodie GAULIN from the LRSV (firstname.lastname@example.org) and is the point of contact and arbiter regarding publication plans. Scientists are strongly encouraged to contact her about their intentions and any potential collaboration.
Reserved analyses include the identification of complete (whole genome) sets of genomic features such as genes, gene families, regulatory elements, repeat structures, GC content, etc., and whole-genome comparisons of regions of evolutionary conservation or change. Manually annotated genes are also reserved.
The data may be freely downloaded and used by all who respect the restrictions in the previous paragraphs. While still in waiting period status, the assembly and raw sequence reads should not be redistributed or repackaged without permission from the principal collaborator of Aphanomyces genomes project (E. Gaulin). Once moved to unreserved status, the data are freely available for any subsequent use.
