Steps to submit new QTL/association data

As an alternative to manually curating your QTL/association data into the QTLdb with the curator/editor tools, large quantities of new data may also be tabulated in plain text format to batch load for incorporation into the QTLdb. If you choose this method, please follow these steps:
  1. Prepare your data:

    1. Follow the minimum required information guidelines when preparing your data.
    2. Organize your data in several file groups:
      1. Publication/manuscript
      2. Experiment descriptions
      3. Trait description
      4. Tabulated data (contains map locations, traits, statistics, and other information such as breed, associated genes, etc.) in one or more (.csv or tab-delimited) text files.
    3. Compress your data files.
  2. Send your data:
  3. Get in touch with one of our curators

    Your uploaded data will need to go through a number of curation and quality control processes before they may be released for public access. Therefore it is necessary for you to email us to follow up. This is to make sure that we have received your data in order for us to coordinate the curation workflow, and to solve any minor glitches if there is any.

    If you know one of us, contact him/her directly!
