Since several LINCS centers will produce and analyze the data for the library, data must be collected in a standardized, integrated, and coordinated manner to promote consistency and comparison across different cell types.

Once collected, data must be made available to the research community in various formats so it can be used in different types of analyses.

The data standards page describes the data structures that are being developed by the LINCS Data Working Group.

The data releases page describes the collections of data released to the public by the LINCS centers and how to access and download them.
