How to get Involved

There are different ways in which external researchers can be involved with PANGEA.

1) Sequence your samples with PANGEA: We offer subsidised state-of-the-art NGS sequencing to collaborators who are willing to contribute their sequence data, and associated epidemiological data to the PANGEA database 12 months after they have received the data.

2) Contribute sequence data: If your project is at a stage where you are ready to reach out to a wider range of collaborators or if you are looking for a secure storing place for your data, consider contributing your sequence data to the PANGEA database.

3) Join the community of PANGEA researchers: The aim of PANGEA is to make the best possible use of the data for public health and scientific discovery, and to give credit to the people who generated the data. PANGEA therefore operates a data sharing policy that is as open as possible given the sensitivity of the data. External researchers can request access to the data via a concept sheet proposal. After six months and two successful progress updates to the consortium, researchers named on the concept sheet proposal can apply to become an accredited PANGEA researcher. Accredited PANGEA researchers have access to all sequence data and less-sensitive metadata. They are required to agree to a code of conduct and update the consortium regularly on their research. Collaborations with researchers from the institutes that generated the data are encouraged.
