Before we prepare and sign a Data
Transfer Agreement with your institution, please download and
complete the Publication
Dataset Access Statement of Work Document according to the instructions
below. Note that you should
not sign the document at this stage, and there are some fields that
you should not complete.
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 dataset access request to ensure all
parties receive access to datasets within a similar timeframe.
Collaborators should only send the request via email if they
cannot access the 23andMe Publication
Dataset Access Request Form.
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.
