ENA data go Galactic

Fri, 2012-01-06

Next generation sequence data from ENA's Sequence Read Archive (SRA) are now available as a data source in the Galaxy analysis system.

SRA data can be browsed and selected for upload using the Galaxy 'Get Data' tool. The 'EBI SRA' data source forwards users to ENA's pages to upload data into Galaxy.

In ENA, links are provided to Galaxy that upload data into the system and launch a session. For example, the following URL provides a list of all fastq files associated with SRA study ERP000591: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena/data/view/ERP000591. The Galaxy file upload links are available in the column 'Galaxy'.
