Open data and protocol sharing

In our opinion, good science isn’t done in a vacuum. Sharing information among our peers is critical for responding to a public health crisis and understanding the mechanisms driving emerging diseases. We’ll release our virus genetic data and any useful protocols or analysis tools as soon as they are generated. Please note that because these are usually early releases (pre-publication), they may contain mistakes. We’ll make more protocols, analysis tools, and data available soon. If you have any questions, or if you find a mistake, feel free to email us at [email protected].
