The biomedical research community’s understanding of the novel coronavirus and the associated coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is rapidly evolving. Open science and the timely sharing of research data have played a critical role in advancing our understanding of COVID-19 and accelerating the pace of discovery.


Researchers had an opportunity to hear from multiple generalist repositories about the ways each repository is supporting discoverability and reusability of COVID-19 data and associated code. The NLM also provided an overview of available COVID-19 literature.
