Policies and Guidance
Frequently Asked Questions regarding the NIH Genomic Data Sharing (GDS) Policy.
Investigators can access human genomic data through a tiered model of unrestricted-access (i.e., open) and controlled-data access mechanisms.
Per the NIH GDS Policy, informed consent documents for prospective data collection after January 25, 2015 should state what data types will be shared, for what purposes and whether sharing will occur through open or controlled access databases.
