Dear colleagues, please see the email below regarding data in international repositories. Please help if you can! 


Hi all,

The BioCommons is currently seeking to better support researchers downloading and accessing third-party public data from international repositories (e.g. those hosted by NCBIEMBL-EBI, etc) to carry out their research.

We want to hear about your current and future infrastructure needs – the data transfer protocols, help and training, local storage and compute you currently use; any difficulties or bottlenecks you have faced; and your views on what you think is missing nationally. Please share your thoughts in our community survey: 

Survey responses will help inform national strategies to improve data access from international repositories for Australian researchers.

The survey should take around 5-10 minutes to complete.
