Data Release Policy

As a public service, the genomic sequence data and preliminary annotations for various fungal species are being made available before scientific publication by the Genozymes for Bioproducts and Bioprocesses Development Project which is funded primarily by Genome Canada. This website is being hosted and the data maintained at the Centre for Structural and Functional Genomics at Concordia University (Montreal, Quebec, Canada).

While early data release should aid scientific research and development, these pre-publication data are preliminary and may contain errors. The Genozymes for Bioproducts and Bioprocesses Development Project reserves the exclusive right to publish the genome annotation data, initial analyses on fungal gene expression under different growth conditions by means of transcriptomic and proteomic data analyses, comparative genomics analysis of these data with other fungal sequence data, and analyses of these data for distribution of protein domains and metabolic pathways.

By accessing these data, you agree not to publish any articles containing analyses of genes or genomic data on a whole genome or chromosome scale prior to publication by the Genozymes project and its collaborators of its comprehensive genome analysis of these species. These restrictions will be lifted on the publication of the whole genome description. Interested scientists are strongly encouraged to contact members of the Genozymes Project about their intentions and any potential collaboration.

These data may be downloaded freely and used by those who respect the above restrictions. When these data are used for any publications, the following acknowledgement should be included: "The genomic sequence data were produced by the Genozymes for Bioproducts and Bioprocesses Development Project (Website: http://www.fungalgenomics.ca)." We request that you notify us upon publication so that this information can be included in the final genome annotations. Any redistribution of these data is only allowed with permission from the Genozymes for Bioproducts and Bioprocesses Development Project, and it should carry this notice: "The Genozymes for Bioproducts and Bioprocesses Development Project provides these data in good faith, but makes no warranty, expressed or implied, nor assumes any legal liability or responsibility for any purpose for which the data are used."
