Research data handling

The handling of data generated in the Proteomics core facility is governed by the measure of the CEITEC MU Director: Research Data Policy, which specifies generally applicable regulations, and the Core Facility Data Management document (below). All users of the laboratory (MU employees, external, commercial and others) are obliged to follow these documents and acknowledge the Core Facility in all results published based on the data obtained at the Core Facility (see Acknowledgment).

Proteomics Core Facility Data Management

Version: 1.1.

Applicable from: 24. 9. 2021

1. Data accessibility

Users are provided with the final report with results in most cases. Users can request corresponding raw data via a discussion forum in our ordering system. The requested raw data will be provided to the user in a mutually agreed manner, e.g. via FileSender (https://filesender.cesnet.cz) or public data repository like PRIDE (https://www.ebi.ac.uk/pride/).

2. Disk space quotas per user/measurement set

Proteomics does not currently enforce any hard quotas on the storage of the raw scientific data per user or measurement set. 

3. Data storage

All raw and related data are currently stored for at least 5 years (no longer than 10 years) since measurement.

4. Preferred way of data transfer to users

The requested raw data will be provided to the user in a mutually agreed manner, e.g. via FileSender (https://filesender.cesnet.cz) or public data repository like PRIDE (https://www.ebi.ac.uk/pride/).

5. Destruction of old data

The raw and all related data may be destroyed after 5 years since measurement. Users will always be notified in advance to provide appropriate time to arrange data transfer if requested by the user.

6. Data security

Users do not have access to original raw data, which are stored at backed-up secure storage locations (maintained by ICS MU). The reports are accessible via our system´s folders with restricted access enabled to respective users. 

7. Handling of sensitive data

We receive only anonymized/pseudonymized samples for analysis.
