The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has a Genomic Data Sharing (GDS) Policy that applies to all NIH funded research that generates human genomic data. Investigators are expected to comply with GDS policy by submitting large-scale human genomic data as well as relevant associated data to an NIH-designated data repository. Institutions are responsible for ensuring that a plan for the submission of human genomic data to the NIH meets the expectations of the GDS Policy through an Institutional Certification. Investigators are expected to work with their institution to provide Institutional Certification prior to initiating applicable research. Specific information pertaining to the GDS Policy, Institutional Certifications, and the NIH publicly available datasets can be found in the link below.
