Data Usage Policy

In 2009 the Toronto International Data Release Workshop agreed on a policy statement about prepublication data sharing (Nature 461, 168-170). Prepublication data release was recommended for genetic association studies involving "genomewide association analysis of thousands of samples", among other kinds of studies.

Accordingly, many of the datasets in T3 are being made available prior to publication of a global analysis by the data producers. Guidelines for appropriate sharing of these data are given in the excerpt from the Toronto Statement below.

Collaborative Oat Research Enterprise (CORE) phenotype data Nick Tinker, Eric Jackson The CORE AFRI109 Panel, CORE Spring Panel and the CORE Winter Panel. Planned analysis and publication of GWAS foundation papers by the CORE group following publication of consensus map, LD and diversity study. 2014 TBA at publication date
A high-density consensus map enhanced with additional SNPs and Haplotype-based loci called using Haplotag (Tinker et al., 2016). GBS loci were validated using 4657 diverse hexaploid oat lines as the training population and were placed on the oat consensus map (Chaffin et al. 2016). The placement was done by using 9 mapping populations that were components of the original consensus map as well as the GBS training population. Nick Tinker, Wubishet A. Bekele Expanded Oat Consensus Map (2016) A publication describing the quality and attributes of marker placement, as well as an overall assessment of Haplotag software and haplotype-based genetic analysis of oat data is in preparation. February 2016 TBA at publication date
North American Public Oat Genotyping Initiative (POGI) POGI Genotype Experiment Panel This data is made publicly available courtesy of the oat breeders and geneticists who generated it. If you wish to use the data for publication, please contact the T3 curator to coordinate with others developing publication plans. March 2016 March 2016
