Welcome to the Zika experimental science team (ZEST) data portal. Given the urgency of the ongoing Zika virus epidemic, we are making our study results available in real-time. Each study and its available data are shown below. For example, the first study performed by the ZEST team is ZIKV-001. If there are data you would like but are not available, please contact us. We are also happy to answer questions about the data as best as possible, but we apologize in advance if we do not have time to answer each and every question.
Questions or comments can be directed to Dave O'Connor firstname.lastname@example.org
. You can also follow the O'Connor lab (@dho_lab) or Dave (@dho) on Twitter.
LabKey (long-time technology partners of the O'Connor Lab) has launched the Zika Open-Research Portal
to help facilitate collaborative research. This portal provides researchers with a platform to share raw data, study commentary and results with the public in real-time. Projects are freely available to investigators.
If you are interested in making your research publicly available through the portal, please contact LabKey
to get started.
