Nucleic acid sequence
Nucleic acid sequence data must be deposited to repositories which are part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC). Sequence information should be deposited following the MIxS guidelines, with associated metadata being INSDC compatible.
Simple genetic polymorphisms or structural variations should be submitted to dbSNP or dbVar (please note that these repositories cannot accept sensitive data derived from human subjects); the NCBI Trace Archive may be used for capillary electrophoresis data, while SRA accepts NGS data only.
|Protein sequence repositories|
Molecular & supramolecular structure
These repositories accept structural data for small molecules (COD); peptides and proteins (all); and larger assemblies (EMDB).
These data repositories all accept human-derived data (NeuroMorpho.org additionally accepts imaging data from other organisms). Please note that human-subject data submitted to OpenfMRI must be de-identified.
Please refer to the MIAME standard for microarray data. Molecular interaction data should be deposited with a member of the International Molecular Exchange Consortium (IMEx), following the MIMIx recommendations.
For data linking genotyping and phenotyping information in human subjects, we strongly recommend submission to dbGAP or EGA, which have mechanisms in place to handle sensitive data.
Metabolomics data should be submitted following the MSI guidelines.
We ask authors to submit proteomics data to members of the ProteomeXchange consortium (listed below), following the MIAPE recommendations.
Taxonomy & species diversity
Mathematical & modelling resources
Cytometry and Immunology
|Cytometry & immunology repositories|
These resources provide information specific to a particular organism or disease pathogen. Where applicable, data records should be submitted both to a community repository and to one suitable for the type of data (e.g. transcriptome profiling; please see above).
