Welcome to website of the Genomics Data Access Committe of KU Leuven
Sharing results of the genomic studies has been increasingly encouraged recently. In response to the funders and journals requirements, researchers may need to share the results of their studies via public databases. To address associated concerns with genomic data sharing, establishing a controlled-access model is appeared imperative. Thereby, the rights and interests of the involved parties will be protected. The goal of establishing the DAC of University Leuven is twofold: First, to assist data access/submission applications of KUL/UZ researchers via public databases such as EGA and dbGaP. Second, to assess the data access requests of third party researchers to genomic data produced by KUL/UZ researchers and made available via databases such as EGA and dbGaP.
