If you conducted a study that investigated interactions of genotypes and phenotypes in humans, you should submit your data to the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP), a controlled access data repository. dbGaP accepts any human sequence, variation, and phenotype data that contain personally identifiable information (information that could be recognized as belonging to a specific person).

Next generation sequencing data submitted to dbGaP for controlled access are archived by the protected Sequence Read Archive (SRA). If you have sequencing data from human participants, please follow the Submitting Sequence Data for a dbGaP project guidelines.

A general outline of the dbGaP submission process is shown in this submission chart. Please write to if you have questions related to data submissions.
