GFBio offers support for a semi-automated, easy submission process to transfer your data to a specialized data center and answers your questions concerning metadata standards and formats, as well as terms of reuse and citation. Within the scope of good scientific practice, it is expected that data are submitted to a long-term data center to be preserved and available for discovery. GFBio offers long- term storage of your data at its collaborating data centers.
