An NIDCR-funded consortium designed to encourage collaboration among craniofacial researchers and accelerate craniofacial research by developing, integrating, and disseminating large datasets to the wider research community. The consortium’s research projects and resulting datasets are described on the FaceBase website, as is the process for obtaining the data. Access to FaceBase datasets is provided without cost to the scientific community.
