Submit Data to XenbaseXenbase welcomes data submissions from the Xenopus community.
Direct data submission increases the exposure of your work and the amount of data available to the scientific community, including unpublished data that you were unable to include in a journal article because of space limitations. Your data will be integrated with many other data types and will be made widely available for basic and complex database searches.
We can currently incorporate:
- sequence data
- expression data and images obtained using in situ hybridization or immunohistochemistry
- development movies
However, if you have other data that you feel would be valuable to the community, we will try to determine, how best to integrate your data.

In the description field, please tell us (in as much detail as possible), what kind of data you are submitting (Sequence data, Expression images, etc.), the species your data pertain to, suggestions on where you feel your data would best be integrated into Xenbase, and finally, any information pertaining to copyrights on the data. Please also provide an e-mail address, which will allow us to contact you if we have questions regarding your data.
