Submitting data to Xenbase
Xenbase welcomes community submission of both raw and processed data. Raw data is archived on our FTP site and is open for download to the public. Processed data, such as images and annotations of gene expression patterns, are also very welcome and will be integrated into the database. To submit data please use the Submit You Data option under the "Download & Submit Data" menu on every Xenbase page. This will open a simple submission form that includes instructions for uploading data up to 250 MB in size. For larger submissions please contact us and we will facilitate your submission.
Examples of raw data that we already host on our FTP site include genome methylation patterns, collections of DNA and protein sequences, next generation sequencing, etc.
For gene expression data we provide a spreadsheet template and detailed instructions at:
Community data plays an essential role in Xenbase content. In addition to strengthening a community resource, your data is also easily accessible to the broader community and avoids the need for you to host and distribute data locally. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.
