Sign up as outside user

Professionals within the field of microbiology and antimicrobial resistance are invited to participate in the ENGAGE project as ‘outside users’ (see further information below).
How do I sign up?

To sign-up, please respond to Susanne Karlsmose Pedersen (suska@food.dtu.dk) with the name and email address of the contact person(s) who should receive a login to access the working space, and attaching the signed code-of-conduct.
When we receive the signed code-of-conduct, we will get back to you with login information for the working space.

What is an ‘outside-user’?
Firstly, the ENGAGE project is set up as a capacity building project, offering also the opportunity for data sharing of sequences and thereby allowing for sequence analysis and comparison. For this, an infrastructure has been created (cloud-based protected Working space as part of the ENGAGE project and COMPARE consortium to upload and download sequence data for further analysis. So-called ‘outside-users’ of ENGAGE also have access to share and analyze sequences.

What is the code-of-conduct?
The code-of-conduct is your written consent to include your genomes in our cloud-based protected working space, allowing you and other partners and ‘outside-users’ to analyze your genomes in a greater context. Note, the code-of-conduct is prepared for both ENGAGE and allows you to decide to also optionally share your sequences with the COMPARE consortium.

What is needed to become an ‘outside-user’?
To become an ‘outside-user’ of the ENGAGE network, it is required that a the code-of-conduct is signed. You would need to send us the signed code-of-conduct. When we receive the signed code-of-conduct, we will get back to you with login information for the working space.

How about expenses?
Note that this invitation to become an ‘outside user’ does not include an offer of covering expenses related to this activity.

What’s in it for you – and for ENGAGE?
Opening ENGAGE for ‘outside-users’ allows for the project to obtain a larger collection of sequences, and allows for ‘outside-users’ to have access to all the available data! This allows for the possibility of comparing data as fast as the sequences are uploaded. It is not yet real-time, but we are closing in on real-time.

Sequences of which organisms are relevant?

The target-organisms of the ENGAGE programme Salmonella enterica serotypes and E.coli listed in the target list.

Apart from sequences, which metadata should be submitted?

See further description under ‘Working Space’.
