EMBL-EBI: Introduction to the European Nucleotide Sequence Archive

EBI

 

Description

The European Nucleotide Sequence Archive (ENA) is a global database for storing experimental nucleotide data and also interpreted data (alignment files, variant calling, analysis results). ENA is the database where all raw and consensus viral sequence data should be deposited, including SARS-Cov-2 data. The data is submitted by scientists conducting sequencing experiments and publishing research in the area. Data is fully searchable and available for download. Sequence data includes raw NGS files (FastQ, BAM…), assembled genomes and transcriptomes, and annotated sequences (protein coding genes, non coding RNA, barcode genes, HLA genes).

This training is aimed at a wide range of users that need to retrieve data from ENA, either occasionally or on a regular basis, or those users who will have retrieval needs closer to the course time.

 

Prerequisites

  • The workshop is suitable for scientists that are producing sequence data and require a platform to publish it, and for bioinformaticians wishing to search and analyse third party sequence data.
  • No previous bioinformatics experience is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology would be an advantage
  • Graduate students, Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge, Affiliated Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
