Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I found a dataset publically available on ENA site (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena/), but
   fail to find any publication associated with it.  Can I download the dataset and do
   some analysis?  It is not clear to me that according to the Data Sharing Statement 
   of FAANG, we can or cannot use this data?

A: I suppose as long as you follow the guidelines set forth in The FAANG Data Sharing 
   Statement (http://www.faang.org/data-share-principle) cited by the project abstract 
   (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena), you can download and analyze the data and cite the data
   source in related publications.  Consult your advisor if there are items not
   articulated clearly; If there are situations not well described in the FAANG Data
   Sharing Statement, please have your advisor contact the authors of the data to get
   a consent.

   In addition, I would suggest you contact the submitters of the data for more details
   in terms of the use of the data and to potentially collaborate.
