FAQ

What is the data access policy for LungMap?

The LungMap consortium has an open access data policy and does not require any formal registration. We do ask that you create a user account (click "Sign In" at the top right of the homepage) which is simply submitting your email address. When LungMAP data is used, we ask that you cite us as a source.

 

Which organisms are available?

All data now available comes from un-diseased human (Homo sapiens) and mouse (Mus musculus) tissue.

 

Why can't I find data at stages of development that I'm interested in?

Data from additional developmental stages will be added as results are available from the LungMAP research centers. The Mouse and Human Matrix tables describe the data now contained in BREATH.

 

Is LungMap on social media?

LungMap can be followed on Twitter @lungmapnet

How is LungMap funded?

LungMAP funding is provided by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health under Award Number U01HL122638. Funding takes the form of a cooperative agreement and supports 4 Research Centers and the Human Tissue Core. For more detailed information, please see the LungMAP team page.

 

How is LungMap different from other databases that have gene data?

BREATH, the LungMAP database, is specific to the developing lung. Human and mouse tissue are being studied through an array of experiments designed to generate comparative data, revealing how transcription, differentiation and activation processes interact and cells mature into a functional normal lung.  Experiment results include data from laser capture microdissection (LCM), FACS, RNA analyses, single cell RNA-seq along with molecular imaging.

 

What should I do if I see an error in the data found on the LungMap site?

Go to the Report a bug page and fully describe the error or problem with the website or data.

 

How often is LungMap updated?

The BREATH database is updated approximately quarterly. In order to be reminded of updates, please join our mailing list.
