Summary

  • EBI Metagenomics is a dedicated resource to analyse metagenomics data.
  • Metagenomic sequence data and their descriptive metadata have to be archived in ENA before EBI Metagenomics can analyse them.
  • The submission of metagenomics data to ENA involves four steps:
    - uploading metagenomic sequence data;
    - creating  an ensemble of samples, referred to as a study;
    - providing metadata by completing a biome-related checklist;
    - linking samples and metadata to the metagenomic sequence data.
  • The submission can be performed in one session or in separate sessions.
