Announcing FB3 - Downloads no longer require sign-in, we're accepting data from the community!
Published 07 November 2019
We are happy to officially announce the third phase of FaceBase! This new phase kicked off in early fall and we are hard at work on many changes over the next five years that will make FaceBase an even more open and useful resource for the community. But for now here are the two biggest updates:
Opening up data submissions
The former hub and spoke format of the previous two versions of FaceBase is no more. We still have the Hub as the coordinating center and innovators of the data repository, but we no longer have a select group of projects (the spokes). Instead we are opening our repository to the craniofacial research community to help enhance our already rich data offerings.
If you have data that you think the community would find useful, please fill out this form to tell us about yourself and your data.
Downloads without login
We no longer require you to have a membership and be logged in to download our data (except for controlled-access human data, of course). This is a major shift designed to make it even easier and more seamless for our users to get the data you need for your research when you need it.
We do still encourage you to sign up for our newsletter - membership does have its privileges, such as keeping you updated on new features and new data and learning about the many exciting events we’ll be planning in the future.
