Data Sharing in Functional Genomics

Definition

Understanding a gene’s functions is no less important than knowing its sequence, but data derived from functional screens have often been shared less systematically and thoroughly than sequencing data. This collection of data descriptors, organized in partnership with groups from leading functional genomics screening facilities around the globe, demonstrates the feasibility and value of sharing these inherently complex data types.
