NIH expands policy on genomic data sharing

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is implementing a new policy on Genomic Data Sharing (GDS). Starting on January 25, 2015, investigators must provide a “Genomic Data Sharing Plan” in their funding applications, and large-scale human or non-human genomic data resulting from NIH-funded studies must be made publicly accessible through an NIH-designated data repository.
