Downloading Genomic Data

The All of Us Research Program has developed a Data and Statistics Dissemination Policy that establishes what type of data can and cannot be downloaded or exported from the Researcher Workbench. With the introduction of Genomic Data to the Researcher Workbench, we would like to explain how the policy directly relates. 

Since there are two alleles per person, allele counts less than 40 are not to be downloaded or shown outside of the workbench. Counts less than 40 can be represented as "<40".

We do understand that Genomic Data can be large and when downloading summary statistics that meet the Data and Statistics Dissemination Policy requirements, egress alerts can still be triggered. Egress alerts are a security measure built in for data protection when downloading data from the workbench. If your download triggers an egress alert, preventing your download, please try splitting up your download into smaller files. Download these smaller files with approximately an hour between each download.
