A collaborative platform that allows users to share genomic datasets. Dataset administrators can add/remove collaborators or groups of collaborators through a dedicated sharing interface. It is possible, as discussed in the 'Grouping and sub-grouping' section to create a new dataset by grouping samples from independent datasets. These newly generated datasets are private by default - that is, only the owner has access to them. Sharing preferences and the public status of the dataset can be changed by the owner. An owner of a dataset can make it public to the InSilico DB community or keep it private. A private dataset can be shared with collaborators who can be given read-only or read-and-write permissions. A user who has read-and-write permissions on a dataset can edit its sharing preferences.
