We would really appreciate some input from the society, regarding the availability of CCLE data downloaded from https://portals.broadinstitute.org/ccle/about, and we really hope that this an appropriate place to get some additional information from research groups experienced in using such publicly available data.
We would like to use gene expression (microarray) and protein expression (RPPA) data from this portal, as input in a specific bioinformatic analysis we are conducting. We won't redistribute the data or use them for commercial purposes and of course we are going to provide the necessary acknowledgements. The terms and conditions highlight the fact that downloaded data should be used for internal research purposes. The question is do we need to ask for additional permission before using such data in our analysis and consequently in a potential publication?
Thank you !
