What is Transparent Informatics?

As increasingly large and complex datasets are used to deliver routine clinical care and do biomedical research, there is a need for well-integrated systems of software and data that can be used by everyone.

Software can be a "transparent informatics resource" if it provides downloadable source code that is made publicly available under the AGPLv3 / GPLv2 (or any later version) or a compatible license such as Apache 2.0.

Integrated Human Datasets (i.e. sequencing, health, and other biomedical data) can be "transparent informatics resources" if they are in the public domain via the Creative Commons CC0 copyright waiver or an equivalent legal construct; other information (e.g. wikis, scientific articles) available under CC-BY-SA or a compatible license such as CC-BY or CC0.

What is the Arvados Foundation?

The Arvados Foundation is dedicated to enabling precision medicine through transparent informatics. Learn more about the foundation at
