Understand the AMP PD two tier access model (and abide by it)
AMP PD study data is controlled access data. Only individuals who have been approved for access by the program should have access. If you have been granted access to AMP PD data, do not share it with others who have not been authorized. If you have been granted access to a higher tier (more restricted) data, do not share the more restricted data with individuals who have not been granted access to the higher tier.
The following describes AMP PD's two levels of data access for researchers:
- Tier 1: Clinical data and some omics sample metadata
This group has access to participant-level clinical data, along with limited information about genomic and transcriptomic samples. Such information today includes lists of participant samples and can include aggregated information about genomic mutations.
Terra group: amp-pd-clinical-access

- Tier 2: Clinical, genomic, and transcriptomic data
This group has access to the full range of data, including participant-level clinical, genomic, and transcriptomic data.
