Thank you for your interest in the RD-Connect Genome Phenome Analysis Platform. We are happy to register you, but before we can create a profile for you and your group, we have a registration process in place.
We need to verify new users by asking you to complete the necessary forms, sign the Adherence Agreement and provide some photographic identification. We do this to ensure that the data stored on the platform is safe, secure and will not be abused in any way.
This is a generic form so not all parts may be applicable to you, i.e. whether you are actually submitting any sequencing data to the platform, but you can ignore the parts that are not relevant. This first section is the most important as it details how to actually register you and your research group with the platform. The following sections are guides for using the phenotypic database and analysis platform and how to submit genomic sequencing data.
The way we ensure only legitimate users can register with the system is by validating the project leads (PL) for each project. Each PL needs to read our Code of Practice (Step 1.2) and agree to it by signing the Adherence Agreement (Step 1.3).
You are then entitled to register other members of your research group (other clinicians, researchers or bioinformaticians who will be involved with the analysis of your data). These group members do not need to sign the agreement themselves, as you are “vouching for them” as their PL.
The Code of Practice
The RD-Connect Code of Practice ensures that all data on the RD-Connect Genome-Phenome Analysis Platform are shared according to legal requirements, ethical principles as well as patient and scientific needs.
Please follow the link below and complete the form.
We will use this information to verify you as a legitimate user and proceed with registration.
You will need to upload the signed Adherence Agreement (Step 1.3) and some photographic identification (e.g. passport or driving licence) as as image or PDF.
