I have genotype data from few chicken population and I want to (need to) upload them somewhere online with free access. I have searched the web but I haven't found any place for non-human genotype data!

Does anyone have an idea where I can upload it, which is publicly available and user friendly?

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks @Chris I checked the link. As long as I understood all those links are for "new variants discovered" or "data for GWAS study". I just have genotypes. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I did not find any site like that. You can upload the file in your university/lab website. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I don't think there is an answer for this question, as such a repository for chicken data does not exist. $\endgroup$

I don't think that it is necessary to upload to a specialist or targeted repository if none are obvious. For some data types there is an obvious repository such as dbSNP. It does not sound like such exists.

Probably things have changed since the question was posted, but nonetheless I think that this is a useful question to have answered.

There are a variety of data repositories to which you can upload unstructured data that do not require you to host it yourself:

  1. Open Science Foundation: free, non-profit dedicated to ensuring data access and scientific reproducibility.
  2. FigShare: has free accounts, for-profit company.
  3. Dryad: free, non-profit.
  4. Zenodo: non-profit.
