The goal of this document is to describe the metadata model and to give sufficient information to submitters to be able to use the objects required for Webin submissions.
If you have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The metadata model contains the following objects:
|Submission||SRA.Submission.xsd||A submission contains submission actions to be performed by the archive. A submission can add more objects to the archive, update already submitted objects or make objects publicly available.|
A study groups together data submitted to the archive. Please use the study accession number when citing data submitted into ENA. All associated data and other objects are made public when the study release date expires.
|Sample||SRA.sample.xsd||A sample contains information about the sequenced samples. Samples are associated with checklists, which define the attributes used to annotate the samples, and experiments or analysis objects.|
|Experiment||SRA.experiment.xsd||An experiment contains information about the sequencing experiments including library and instrument detail.|
|Run||SRA.run.xsd||Runs are part of experiments and contain sequencing reads submitted in data files (e.g. BAM or CRAM). Each run can contain all or part of the results for a particular experiment.|
An analysis contains secondary analysis results computed from the primary equencing reads. There are four types of analyses.
This type of analysis is used for genome assembly submissions.
|SRA.analysis.xsd||This type of analysis is used for read re-alignment submissions.|
|SRA.analysis.xsd||This type of analysis is used for sequence variation submissions.|
|Analysis (SEQUENCE_ANNOTATION)||SRA.analysis.xsd||This type of analysis is used for sequence annotation submissions.|
|EGA DAC||EGA.dac.xsd||An European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) data access committee (DAC). Required for authorized access submissions.|
|EGA Policy||EGA.policy.xsd||An European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) data access policy. Required for authorized access submissions.|
|EGA Dataset||EGA.dataset.xsd||An European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) data set. Required for authorized access submissions.|
