All of the published work and associated material has been deposited in the Oxford University Research Archive which has a comprehensive search facility. 

You may also search for our work in many of the public repositories of data such as NCH Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO)

By default, we license our published data under the Creative Commons Attribution licence (CC BY). If you re-use our open access data in your own work we ask you to attribute the original authors of the work, the MRC WIMM, the funders of the work and the University of Oxford.
