FaceBase Terms of Use for Open Data

FaceBase is intended to be a resource for the larger scientific community. Please help us accomplish that goal by following these "terms of use":

  1. Copyright to data and images on the FaceBase site is held by the individual investigators that contributed them. Please acknowledge the FaceBase projects that generated the data and relevant publications from FaceBase investigators in any of your work resulting from the use of FaceBase datasets. We’ll post the citations for relevant publications on the page linking to the dataset. Please also acknowledge that you obtained the dataset from the FaceBase database, For example:
    miRNA expression data were obtained from FaceBase ( and were generated by project U01DE020076. The FaceBase consortium and the FaceBase Coordinating Hub (1U01DE024449-01) are funded by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.
  2. Please don’t circulate these datasets to other potential users. In addition to being a copyright violation, the datasets may be periodically updated, expanded or corrected so it makes the most sense for new users to obtain the latest version directly from FaceBase. Doing so also helps us collect the usage data needed to demonstrate that the community is taking advantage of FaceBase.
  3. Please let us know about any of your publications resulting from analysis of FaceBase data. We’ll post the citations to the FaceBase website – more exposure for your work and another way for us to document how FaceBase is being used by the scientific community.
