You can run analysis on dbGaP data at MSI, but you must have an active Data Access Plan with the NIH and request a special project (email@example.com).
NCBI's webpage has information about how to request access to dbGaP data.
dbGaP was previously stored in /panfs/single_copy. It now data goes onto Stratus (s3cache and s3secure) or as a special project on tier 1.
If you would like to analyze dbGaP data on MSI, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
