Data transfer and protection in the PGen Study. Heavily shaded boxes represent PGen Study team members; PGT customers/PGen Study participants are represented by a striped box. The contents of each box represent the data types available to each party. Numbers indicate the sequential steps involved in data transfer between PGen Study members (step 1 is italicized), and each arrow represents a one-way flow of data between parties. Data in parentheses were embedded in the survey invitations and were not visible to participants. PGT, personal genomic testing; MID, master identification number; SID, survey identification number; PID, personal identification number; BL, baseline; 2 W, 2 week; 6 M, 6 month.
