  • BioTorrents allows scientists to rapidly share their results, datasets, and software using the popular BitTorrent file sharing technology.
  • All data is open-access and any illegal filesharing is not allowed on BioTorrents.
  • We encourage researchers and organizations to share their data on BioTorrents as an alternative to hosting files through FTP or HTTP for the following reasons:
    1. Using BioTorrents can allow researchers to download large datasets much faster.
    2. BioTorrents can act as a central listing of results, datasets, and software that can be browsed and searched.
    3. Data can be located on several servers allowing decentralization and availability of the data if one server becomes disabled
  • Please visit the Browse page to see a list of files available for download and the FAQ for more information.
