Please feel free to use this data to advance your studies of tef. Please cite "Eragrostis tef v 1.0, http://www.tef-research.org/genome.html" and the above publication.
As a public service, the complete Eragrostis tef genome sequence is available before scientific publication according to the Ft. Lauderdale Accord. This balances the imperative that the data from sequencing projects be made available as soon and as completely as possible with the desire of contributing scientists to reserve a reasonable period of time to publish on the genome sequencing and analysis without concerns about preemption by other groups.
Early release should aid the progress of science. By accessing these data, you agree not to publish any articles containing analyses of genes or genomic data on a whole genome or chromosome scale prior to publication by the Univesity of Bern and/or its collaborators of a comprehensive genome analysis ("Reserved Analyses"). "Reserved analyses" include the identification of complete (whole genome) sets of genomic features such as genes, gene families, regulatory elements, repeat structures, GC content, or any other genome feature, and whole-genome- or chromosome- scale comparisons with other species. The embargo on publication of Reserved Analyses by researchers outside of the Tef Genome Sequencing Project is expected to extend until the publication of the results of the sequencing project. Scientific users are free to publish papers dealing with specific genes or small sets of genes using the sequence data. If these data are used for publication, the following acknowledgment should be included: 'These sequence data were produced by the University of Bern'. This letter has been circulated to Journal Editors so that they are aware of the conditions of access and publication detailed above. These data may be freely downloaded and used by all who respect the restrictions in the previous paragraphs. The assembly and sequence data should not be redistributed or repackaged.

The data from June 26, 2015 is here. Any questions? contact zerihun.tadele@ips.unibe.ch
