Whole human genome data released under Creative Commons licence

One of the things that I’ve been working a lot on over the last year is setting up pipelines to analyze whole genome sequencing data from human samples. This work is now coming to fruition and one part of that is that we (at the SNP&SEQ Technology Platform) have now released data for our users and others to see. It’s still a work in progress, but most of the pieces are in place at this stage.

The data is being release under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License, so as long as you attribute the work to the SNP&SEQ Technology Platform you can use it for non-commercial purposes. You’ll find the data here:


Being a fan of open science working for an employer that will release data for the benefit of the community makes me jump with joy!

P.S. Like to have a look at the code that makes it all happen, checkout the National Genomics Infrastructure github repo.
