Online Ancient Genome Repository (OAGR) is an open access repository for ancient human DNA data. It captures and catalogues ancient human genome and microbiome data, including raw sequence and processed data, along with metadata about its provenance and production. Included datasets are generated from ancient samples studied at the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA (ACAD) in collaboration with other research groups.

As genomics and microbiome data are routinely generated for ancient samples, it is crucial to keep track of raw and processed data, bioinformatics pipelines and metadata describing the provenance and production of the data. OAGR makes this valuable data and metadata available for discovery and reuse by others.
