Genomics and Health
These 10 Simple Rules have been developed from our combined experiences with the Repositive platform, working with human genomic data, data repositories and data users. We do not claim that these rules will eliminate every possible risk of data misuse. Rather, we hope that these will help scientists to increase the reusability of their human genomic data, whilst also ensuring that the privacy of their subjects is maintained according to their consent frameworks. Many of the principles presented are also applicable to other types of clinical research data, where participant privacy is a concern.
