Submission of data
All users are welcome to submit their strain information and new allele sequences to our databases for Streptococcus agalactiae. This information will be made available on this web site. In order that queries and requests for strains can be addressed to the submitter of isolate data, the name and affiliation of the submitter will be displayed on the website. E-mail addresses are not displayed but can be requested from the curator.
In order to maintain the quality of the data, the databases are curated and all submissions will be checked before entry.
Automated submission system
We have introduced an automated system for submission of new alleles and isolate data.
- New allele sequences need to be trimmed to the start and end sites of the locus (see existing alleles for comparison). Sequences determined by whole genome methods can be submitted as FASTA files. Sequences determined by Sanger methods should be accompanied by ABI/SCF trace files, which can be uploaded as supporting data.
- New profile/ST assignment requires that you submit data for an isolate that has that profile. Please add the isolate name to the id field of the profile submission and make a corresponding submission to the isolate database.
- Whole genome data can be submitted through the system. Please upload new isolate records and attach contig files as supporting files. Contigs should be in a single FASTA file for each isolate.
Users will need an account in order to use the submission system. Please register if you do not already have an account.
Please read the submission system documentation for further details.
The template files listed below will help you upload your data in the correct format.
