The GMSR practices secure, stable data management. Within the core, raw array data files are maintained on backed up, secure data server.
Note: The GMSR is not responsible for lost data post-project completion. The investigator's lab is encouraged to practice redundant back-up measures to protect against lost/corrupted data discs, drive failure, etc. A fee may apply if GMSR staff time is required to support an investigator's data recovery.
Access to the legacy database, the Affymetrix Microarray Core Database (AMC DB), is still available to investigators that possess login credentials (username/password). Support for this database is currently limited and therefore no new investigators will be added as of August 2008. See above description for current data management procedures.
