eplant data sharing policy: Toronto Agreement

The broad and early availability of sequence data greatly benefited life sciences research by leading to many new insights and discoveries. A Data Release Workshop was convened in Toronto in May 2009 by Genome Canada and other funding agencies, suggested the policies of the early release of genomic data, before the genome paper is published.

eplant is a portal of plant genomic data and tools. eplant is launched and maintained by Dr. Fei Chen from college of horticulture, Nanjing Agricultural University. eplant provides users full list of sequenced genomes from the whole green lineage or the plant kingdom or the Archaeplastida. Currently, eplant hosts hundreds of assembled plant and algal genomes, providing a suit of tools for comparative genomics. All genomes were collected from publicated data or open accessed data. Users were also encouraged to submit their own data to GHA for standard processing and wider exposure. By integrating this large collection of data and tools, eplant dedicated to facilitate accurate and insightful comparative genomics studies.
