Submit Metadata & Data

Create your whitelist yaml, use Gen3’s Sheepdog microservice to begin submitting metadata, and download the gen3-client to begin submitting data to your commons. Or look into how to build your own submission apps.

Data Contribution

Access Metadata & Data

Gen3 includes a data portal as a default application over a commons. The portal is an interactive website that allows users to explore, submit, and download data. The data portal utilizes the public APIs offered by the data commons as a demonstration to the power of Gen3. Or look into how to build your own submission apps.
