The FAANG project will establish an infrastructure capable of
efficiently analyzing genome-wide functional data for animal
species. Such large-scale analyses will contribute to our
understanding of how variation in gene sequences and functional
components determine phenotypic diversity. This understanding
will inform the development and exploitation of improved models
for predicting complex phenotypes from sequence information.
FAANG project members agree to these core principles:
- Working with the FAANG community to
define experimental, meta data, and bioinformatics standards
- Ensure the experiments you conduct
to produce functional annotation of your genomes of interest
adhere to these standards.
- Consent to the "FAANG Data Sharing Statement" which included both the
"Toronto Statement" about pre-publication data sharing and the
"Fort Lauderdale principles" about the release of data and
materials prior to publication.
