I want to get controlled access to dbGaP - in particular to the data that is linked here (section: "Download from dbGaP"): https://github.com/joed3/GTExV6PRareVariation
I am based at the University of Potsdam, Germany and hence have none of the accounts requested for application (eRA Commons, DUNS number, account in SAM and Grant portal, ...) as I am not enrolled in any project funded by the US government or similar. To me, it seems as if I cannot get access at all to the data. I have read all the FAQ's and manuals I could find at dbGaP and eRA.
Is there anyone (from a non-US institution) who has walked through the application process of dbGaP and can help me with what accounts I really need and can create at all (i.e. to get an eRA Commons account, I should be fine with the rest)?
