Data Release Policy
Methylation variable positions (MVPs) are common epigenetic markers.
Like single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), they promise to significantly
advance our ability to understand and diagnose human disease.
The Human Epigenome Consortium (HEC) is a public/private collaboration
that aims to identify and catalogue MVPs in the human genome.
MVPs will be generated in batches. After 120 days the data from each
completed batch will be released at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cancer/research-groups/medical-genomics/hep_data/
and http://www.epigenome.org. No license expressed or implied is granted
for commercial use of the released data. Non-commercial entities may
use the data solely for non-Commercial research purposes.
For the avoidance of doubt, the data is subject to the Wellcome Trust
Intellectual Property Policy and patent applications might have been filed.
