PatSeq Access Plans
Access for Academic research and publication is available to individual users for non-commercial research use only. Users must be associated with a valid institution (including universities or research institutions) and must provide valid institutional contact details including an email address.
Under Academic Use, users can request access to one-off customised PatSeq datasets in either FASTA or Rich file formats. Access to the free FASTA Human Genome dataset (see Jefferson et al., 2015) is also provided for Academic Use only in research and publications.
Commercial Use is defined as any use of PatSeq data that results in a personal, business, or corporate financial gain. Examples of Commercial Use include, but are not limited to, any of the following: commercial research & development, data services and products, consultancy reports, etc.
Commercial Use access plans provide access to PatSeq Bulk Downloads in either FASTA or Rich file formats as monthly or one-off plans, and are provided using a tiered approach to determine the pricing. Pricing Tiers for organisations intending to use the PatSeq Bulk Download for commercial-use are based on the Organisation size and the License Type required.
The size of an organisation is based on the number of employees working for the organisation, and is defined as all employees from all divisions of the organisation and all types of activities, where the organisation is considered to be the largest legal entity which is not owned nor controlled by a larger commercial entity. Organisation size is split into two categories:
- Organisations with fewer than 50 employees
- Organisations with 50 or more employees
An independent search and review will be conducted to confirm the organisation size nominated by the requesting user.
- Internal Use: This license is intended for commercial uses that do not result in the data being used directly in a third-party product or service. Under this license, PatSeq data may not be transferred, sold or re-licensed to third parties, and no commercial derivatives may be made from the data.
- Use in a product or service: This license is intended for Commercial Use where the data will be used directly or indirectly in another product or service. This includes organisations that charge users for services or sell or resell data products that include or have been derived from PatSeq data.
The following table is used to determine the Pricing Tiers for Commercial Use access plans:
|License Type||Less than 50 employees||50 or more employees|
|Internal use only||Tier 1||Tier 2|
|Use in a product or service||Tier 2||Tier 2|
