How to search ENA with text
You can search ENA using free text, such as:
If you search using an ENA accession number, your search results will take you directly to the appropriate entry. If you search using any other text, your search results will consist of a list of entries (Figure 15). The browser also supports accession ranges and lists.

When you search ENA using any term other than an ENA accession number, then you will obtain a list of search results grouped by data type (Figure 16).
Assembled nucleotide entries from EMBL-Bank include:
- Annotated Nucleotide Sequences: entries from the STD, EST, GSS, HGT, HTC, PAT, STS and TSA data classes;
- Whole Genome Shotgun Sequences: entries from the WGS data class;
- Genomic Contructed Sequences: entries from the CON data class;
- Protein-coding Sequences: entries from the CDS data class.
Raw nucleotide data from SRA can be viewed grouped by a study, sample, experiment, run or submission.
Other data includes:
- Projects group together both assembled and raw data for a specific sequencing project;
- Taxonomy group together both assembled and raw data for a taxonomic group.
