  • Please contribute to the Sequence Read Archives

    Please contribute your next gen sequence data to your Sequence Read Archive--at either

    www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Traces/sra



    or
    404 Page not found :( The requested page could not be found.


    You can use the high-speed file transfer called fasp (Aspera, Inc., Emeryville, CA, USA) that allows file transfers up to 400 Mbps. Also for extensive datasets, the automated submission pipeline is available. It uses XML for metadata and Sequence Read Format (SRF) as a common container file format.

    All biological sequence data from all next gen sequencing platforms are welcomed for archiving and will serve as a community scientific resource freely available online.

    For more information see



    Archiving next generation sequence data

    For further discussion on sequence data transfer, see Richard Finney's recent post on data transfer mechanisms,which I have also appended here:

    "Lot of folks use those external hard disks and fed-ex it.
    This is probably the best, easiest, most brain dead way to do it.

    Some people (NCBI for example) want you to use "Aspera Connect" which appears to be a proprietary "fast ftp" server/client application. Source folks have to setup an Aspera server ($) and downloader must install (free) firefox plugin or command line tool.

    Someday we'll laugh at the hoops we had to go through to share this data, but today it's a hassle."

    Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
    by seqadmin


    Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

    Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
    by seqadmin


    Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
