  1. Does NAGRP Data Repository use DOI to refer to a particular data set?

  2. No, we have not implemented DOI system for the supplementary materials we host. This is not only for its cost-dependent system (https://www.doi.org/faq.html), but also for the fact that we are not a publishing platform, and our hosted data may subject to change or removal.

    For supplementary data to publications, the data are not deemed as final upon their first setup, and they may go away depending on if a paper may or may not be finally published. Thus it's not worth setting up DOI for them. The Uniform Resource Locators (URL) we provide are stable and serve as a permanent data locator as long as the domain "animalgenome.org" is alive.

     

  3. What's the difference between NAGRP Data Repository and the NAGRP File Sharing Platform?

  4. In brief, the NAGRP Data Repository is an open platform data host, for any data that members of the community wish to share with the community to benefit the entire research community; while the File Sharing Platform is a file transport service for members of the community to send files to a destination at his/her choice, which include but not limited to the Data Repository.

     

  5. I have a large data set to send but it takes forever to upload. Is that normal?

  6. The NAGRP File Sharing Platform is a web HTTP/CGI based tool which has certain limitations in terms of file sizes and timeout thresholds. When needs to transfer large volumn of data, user can request for our ftp services through our helpdesk.

     

  7. How should I cite the data source for data hosted at this site?

  8. Cite the use of data from this site: please see individual "README" to each file for cite information. When a specific README is not available for a file, refer to "Data sources/credits" below the file list for cite information. Suggested reference formats include but not limited to:
