|XML Schema||XML Schema Document||Description|
|SRA.submission.xsd||SRA.submission.pdf||A submission contains submission actions to be performed by the archive. For small studies the submission accession number can be quoted in place of study accession number.|
|SRA.sample.xsd||SRA.sample.pdf||A sample contains information about the sample upon which the sequencing experiments are based. Samples can be used in any number of sequencing experiments.|
|SRA.study.xsd||SRA.study.pdf||A study contains information about the sequencing project. Studies can contain any number of sequencing experiments.|
|SRA.experiment.xsd||SRA.experiment.pdf||An experiment contains information about the sequencing experiment. Experiments are associated with runs which contain the actual sequencing results.|
|SRA.run.xsd||SRA.run.pdf||A run contains the sequencing results from sequencing experiments. Each run can contain all or part of the results for a particular experiment. For example, each Illumina Genome Analyzer lane is typically represented by a single run.|
|SRA.analysis.xsd||SRA.analysis.pdf||An analysis contains secondary analysis results computed from the primary sequences results.
