This document reviews best practices that: a) respect the existing standardization efforts of life sciences research communities; b) normalize key aspects of data description particularly at the level of the biology being studied (and shared) across the life sciences communities; c) ensure that data are “findable” and useable by other researchers; and d) provide guidance and metrics for assessing the applicability of a particular data sharing plan. This document is applicable to domains in life sciences including biotechnology, genomics (including massively parallel nucleotide sequencing, metagenomics, epigenomics and functional genomics), transcriptomics, translatomics, proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, glycomics, enzymology, immunochemistry, life science imaging, synthetic biology, systems biology, systems medicine and related fields.

This document specifies requirements for data management and publication in microbial resource centres (MRCs) to enable consistent formatting, and a quality control workflow to improve the overall quality of data. It also provides recommendations for MRCs to improve data sharing and integration of microbial material and associated data. This document is intended to facilitate procedures such as accessioning, acquisition, authentication, preservation, storage, and distribution, and can be used by MRCs, regulatory authorities, organizations, and schemes using peer-assessment to confirm or recognize the competence of MRCs in data management and publication NOTE International, national and/or regional regulations or requirements can also apply to specific topics covered in this document.
