    16. Reagent Sharing Policies The BCBC requires sharing of new reagents, protocols and research data with other BCBC-funded participants prior to publication. Sharing prior to publication will be considered a collaboration. New ES cell clones or mice will be made available to the public at large one year after creation OR following first publication. Language will be generated following this retreat regarding sharing of mice, cells and data. Sharing policies will have to be signed by all PIs and business offices and sent back prior to October 15, 2005. SS
