What are the data-sharing requirements?

One key feature of the ACP Repository is that scientists accessing our samples must commit to sharing any experimental results and data with ACP so other users have the opportunity to further explore or build upon those results, formulate new hypotheses, etc.

Recipients must agree to provide the per-sample data resulting from use of samples back to us for inclusion in the database. This data then becomes available for others receiving the samples and data from the Repository. We allow a grace period for publication and the registration of intellectual property rights.
