Where can I download data?

Data can be downloaded using the main menu Download link.  That link will have all data and corresponding metadata that is currently loaded into SeriolaDB or website pointers to where the data is deposited and can be downloaded.

Use the search bar to narrow down the data your search for the data you wish to download.

How do I submit my own data?

Please contact one of the website data curators via email.  There is likely a data curator from a group with whom you already collaborate.

What is a website data curator and what do they do?

A data curator is a member of the International Seriola Consortium that has expertise in bioinformatics or experience with GMOD tools and JBrowse. The fastest way to get your data loaded into this resources is for a member in your group to get trained to become a data curator and help our community grow this resource.  If you would like more information about how to become a data curator please contact Andrew Severin.

What types of data does SeriolaDB contain?

  • Genome assemblies
  • Gene models
  • Gene annotations
  • Transcriptome data
  • Genetic maps (coming soon)
  • QTL data (coming soon)
  • Protocols for lab and culture practices (coming soon)

How do I cite SeriolaDB?

The International Seriola Consortium, Seriola Genomic Resource Website, 2016, Accessed Current Date.

How is SeriolaDB supported?

SeriolaDB is currently supported by NOAA Saltonstall-Kennedy, which was awarded to use high throughput DNA sequencing technologies and open source bioinformatics programs to develop genomic resources and tools for the Seriola Aquaculture community.  For more information see the project page.

What is SeriolaDB?

SeriolaDB is a website designed as a centralized knowledge base for Seriola researchers and producers.  It contains genomics, genetics, breeding and phenotypic data along with protocols and tools to translate this information in to practical applications for culture activities.  SeriolaDB uses Machado to manage the genomics data and Drupal provided by ISU Sites to empower efficient web development by multiple users.
