It's very simple, the public efforts data = PUBLIC DATA. Free to everyone.Celera Data = PRIVATE DATA. You need to pay for it.Why would celera possibly not use the the free to everyone data and add it to their own. Anyone can do the same and package it and sell it. check out www.doubletwist.com PUBLIC DATA + PRIVATE DATA = PRIVATE DATABASEthere are also multiple databases for the public data. I don't think any of the genome companies aren't incorporating public data into their databases. Once again though the scale to which Celera is doing so is the problem and that it is in direct and obvious competition with the public effort. If I read those articles correctly the problem was that Celera doesn't want other companies to be able to distribute the combined data and make money off the packaging.As a scientist i do see something alittle iffy with Celera using public data if they don't give the public effort plenty of credit when the time comes. But as a shareholder i would be really pissed off if celera didn't use the free data.
