23andMe Publication Dataset Access
How to Obtain Access
23andMe is committed to supporting genetic research by enabling access to data we have included in our publications. We provide access to full summary statistics through a Data Transfer Agreement that protects the privacy of our participants’ data. We are currently collaborating with non-profit institutions to provide access to summary statistics in order to support external research initiatives.
If you are a commercial institution interested in receiving 23andMe Summary Statistics please reach out directly to bd@23andMe.com to receive more information.
If you are a non-profit institution, please submit your data request for review before we prepare and sign a Data Transfer Agreement with your institution. Please list the datasets you would like to access and describe your research project in the Statement of Work form using the instructions below. Note that you should not sign the form at this stage, and there are some fields that you should not complete. Additionally, if you are collaborating with investigators at multiple institutions and those institutions must also receive copies of 23andMe summary statistics, please have a PI from each institution submit a separate Statement of Work to ensure all parties receive access to datasets within a similar timeframe.
When you have completed the required fields in the form, please download the SOW as a PDF and send it to dataset-request@23andMe.com, with the subject line: [PI’s Last Name — Publication Dataset Access]. A member of our Research Team will respond to let you know when your form is approved.
