Register a Study Interactively

This form is used to register a study (also referred to as a project). Studies are typically registered before any data is submitted. Data can be added to the study at any time. Please see Interactive Submission Options to learn how to access it. Fill it out and click ‘Submit’ to register your study and receive accession numbers. The details can be edited and updated later, but you need to have registered a study to submit your data.


Locus Tag Prefixes

If you intend to submit an annotated genome assembly, you will need to register a locus tag prefix at this stage. In the bottom right of the form, find the question about functional genome annotation and check the ‘Yes’ radio button and enter your prefix into the box which appears. Once you submit this, it will take 24 hours for the prefix to be usable.

The prefix you enter must conform to the following rules:
  • Starts with a letter
  • Between 3 and 12 characters long
  • Is upper case
  • Contains only alpha-numeric characters and no symbols such as -_*
