The International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC) is a long-standing foundational initiative that operates between DDBJ, EMBL-EBI and NCBI. INSDC covers the spectrum of data raw reads, though alignments and assemblies to functional annotation, enriched with contextual information relating to samples and experimental configurations.

- The INSDC advisory board, the International Advisory Committee, is made up of members of each of the databases' advisory bodies. The International Advisory Committee published a paper reiterating the importance of depositing data to INSDC.
- Individuals submitting data to the international sequence databases should be aware of INSDC policy.
