Fugu genome data release policy
As a public service, the v5 assembly of the Fugu rubripes genome, as well as the raw sequencing data that contributed to the assembly, is being made available by the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB) before scientific publication. IMCB reserves the exclusive right to publish, in a timely manner, the assembly and sequence of the fugu genome along with a genome-scale analysis. Reserved analyses include the identification of complete sets of genomic features such as genes, gene families, regulatory elements, repeat structures, GC content, etc., and the identification of regions of evolutionary conservation across the entire genome.
The data may be freely downloaded and used by all users who respect the restrictions of the previous paragraph. The assembly and raw sequence reads should not be redistributed or repackaged without permission from IMCB.
IMCB encourages the use of the fugu genome sequence for the comparative analysis of individual genes and genomic regions. To this end, a fugu genome browser with preliminary annotation is being made available on this website by IMCB, and the sequence will be deposited prior to publication in public databases. Publications using the fugu genome sequence for the analysis of individual genes and genomic regions should include the acknowledgement "This data has been provided freely by IMCB for use in this publication/correspondence only."
