Intellectual Property and Data Sharing
(From: Plant Genome Research Program RFA for FY 2007, Program Solicitation NSF 07-531, National Science Foundation)

Describe the management of intellectual property rights related to the proposed project, including plans for sharing data, information, and materials resulting from the award. This plan must be specific about the nature of the results to be shared, the timing and means of release, and any constraints on release. The proposed plan must take into consideration the following conditions where applicable:

  • Sequences resulting from high-throughput large-scale sequencing projects (low pass whole genome sequencing, BAC end sequencing, ESTs, full-length cDNA sequencing, etc.) must be released according to the currently accepted community standard (e.g. Bermuda/Ft. Lauderdale agreement) to public databases (GenBank if applicable), as soon as they are assembled and the quality checked against a stated, pre-determined quality standard.
  • Proposals that would develop genome-scale expression data through approaches such as microarrays should meet community standards for these data [for example, Minimum Information About a Microarray Experiment (MIAME) standards; see http://www.mged.org/Workgroups/MIAME/miame.html]. The community databases (e.g. Gene Expression Omnibus) into which the data would be deposited, in addition to any project database(s) should be indicated.
  • If the proposed project would produce community resources (e.g. epidemiological data, genotyping data, biological materials, software, etc.), these resources should be made available to the research community in a timely fashion. The timing of release should be stated clearly in the proposal, and how the resources will be disseminated should be described. The resources produced must be available to all segments of the scientific community, including industry. A reasonable charge is permissible, but the fee structure must be outlined clearly in the proposal. If accessibility differs between industry and the academic community, the differences must be clearly spelled out.
  • The Bermuda / Ft. Lauderdale agreements can be found online at http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/research/bermuda.shtml and http://www.genome.gov/Pages/Research/WellcomeReport0303.pdf (36 KB, PDF)
