Nextstrain Community: Data Sharing via GitHub

We allow researchers to share their analyses through by storing the results of their analysis in their own GitHub repositories. This gives you complete control, ownership, and discretion over your data; there is no need to get in touch with the Nextstrain team to share your data this way. For more details, including instructions on what file formats and naming conventions to use, please see our documentation.

For an alternative approach to sharing data through which is allows larger datasets and/or private data sharing, see Scalable Sharing with Nextstrain Groups.
