Notice New NIH-Designated Data Repository: NHGRI’s Genomic Data Science Analysis, Visualization, Informatics Lab-space AnVIL) Notice Number: NOT-HG-19-024 Key Dates Release Date: July 05, 2019 Related Announcements None Issued National Human Genome Research Institute NHGRI) Purpose The NHGRI Genomic Data Science Analysis, Visualization, Informatics Lab-space, lsquo;AnVIL,’ is secure, cloud-based environment where researchers be able store, share, analyze key unrestricted- controlled-access genomic datasets associated phenotypic data metadata, particularly those generated NHGRI funding support. NHGRI funds manages AnVIL through cooperative agreements. AnVIL implementing security configurations controls its data management system are equivalent those certified FISMA Moderate systems. of March 2019, NHGRI determined AnVIL provides data management, data sharing, data security controls consistent the NIH Genomic Data Sharing GDS) Policy, the NIH Security Best Practices Controlled-Access Data and the Notice Use Cloud Computing Services Storage Analysis Controlled-Access Data Subject the NIH Genomic Data Sharing GDS) Policy. Therefore, AnVIL been approved an NIH-designated data repository the storage, management, sharing genomic data. AnVIL serves the primary data repository NHGRI-funded genomic datasets submitted sharing after March 2019. AnVIL also include datasets submitted NIH prior March 2019 reside within database Genotypes Phenotypes dbGaP); those data be moved AnVIL appropriate. AnVIL follows NIH GDS Policy submitting accessing controlled access genomic datasets, including associated metadata phenotype data. Principal Investigators consortia investigators NHGRI-funded projects share pre-release data according existing NIH GDS practices according consortium-level data agreements. Researchers the broad scientific clinical community interested accessing data hosted AnVIL apply data access through NIH Authorized Access Portal located dbGaP, NIH Data Access Committees DACs) review make determinations these requests per NIH GDS Policy. AnVIL part the emerging federated genomic data commons ecosystem, includes cloud-based data commons established within outside NIH. Staff AnVIL primary grantee institutions their subcontractors responsibility maintaining securing AnVIL data software have only operational access the data AnVIL, expected under terms conditions the AnVIL cooperative agreements. staff associated AnVIL have privileged access the data beyond scope repository operations.
