Data downloads


Many of the genomes, predicted gene sets, and RNA-Seq data hosted on the i5k Workspace@NAL are not yet published. These data are made publicly available in order to enable rapid research on individual genes prior to genome analysis publication. These data are covered by the Ft. Lauderdale and Toronto agreements. Following these agreements, the data producers make the data available and state their intent to publish analyses, the data users ask permission to use the prepublication data and cite the appropriate source, and the journals and reviewers ensure that articles are published following the guidelines. Please identify the recommended citation method for a dataset within each organism page ( If a dataset is covered under the Ft. Lauderdale or Toronto agreements, please contact the genome community contact, available on each organism page, if you wish to use these sequences in published analyses. Get in touch with the i5k Workspace@NAL if you have any questions.
