Data Submission Form

PomBase can host many types of data provided by the research community. Data from high-throughput experiments can be displayed in the context of the Ensembl genome browser. You can use this form or email the PomBase helpdesk to submit published data; also see the FAQ on data formats. Please provide as much information about your data as possible, including the data type (e.g. sequence features, sequence variation, gene expression, phenotype) and description, a track name, and a PubMed ID for the paper describing the data. If you plan to upload a file, please also include the file name. When we receive your submitted form, we will send instructions on how to validate your file (hint: if you can add your data as a custom track, the file is valid) and upload it via FTP.

If you have data representing biological or technical replicates, we recommend that you also provide a file with data representing a consensus, combination, or average of the replicates. The description for the "consensus" file should include the method used to determine the consensus (e.g. mean or median value, or other computational transformation).

Note: We can only use PomBase systematic IDs for genes and other sequence features. Any non-standard IDs will be discarded. If you need to annotate new sequence features, or if you need help finding IDs for existing features, please contact the curators before submitting your data.

You can either upload a file or provide an accession from ENA, ArrayExpress, or GEO; please only supply a file name OR an accession, not both. (Also, please list accession(s) only in the Accession field, not in any of the track description fields.)

If you are using ENA/AE/GEO accessions, please complete this form once for each accession you have to submit. If you plan to upload files, complete the form once for each file, and please include all requested details for each track (data type, method, sample info).

Please indicate the biological type of data in this track. Also use this field to indicate This will form part of the description that will be displayed with the browser track that shows the data. Examples: nucleosome positioning; transcripts; poly(A) sites
Please indicate the experimental method used to generate the data in this track. This will form part of the description that will be displayed with the browser track that shows the data. Examples: RNASeq; tiling microarray; NGS
Please provide a brief description of the specific features that distinguish the data in this track. Usually this corresponds to which experimental sample or trail the track represents, and can include experimental conditions, aspects of the protocol, strain details, etc.. This will form part of the description that will be displayed with the browser track that shows the data. Examples: "quiescence 7d, 972 h-"; "mitosis, pat1.114, diploid'; "Dcr1 binding sites, repeat 1"; "average of sporulation replicates"
For help choosing a format, see the FAQ on file formats and the format-specific FAQs linked there. If your data cannot be represented in any of the available formats, please contact the curators before proceeding. We may be able to assist with format conversion, and if not, we can determine which new data format(s) should be added.
The genome assembly date for your dataset. If you leave this field blank, we will use the January 2007 assembly (ASM294v2 in INSDC) by default.
If you plan to upload a data file, enter the file name here. Please include the PubMed ID in the file name. When you submit the form, PomBase curators will send instructions for uploading the file to the data submission FTP site.
If your data is available in ENA, ArrayExpress, or GEO, enter the accession here.
Please supply any information about your data that is not represented in the track description fields above. For a "consensus" data track, please describe how the consensus/combination/average was obtained here.
