We accept whole genome sequence data in FASTA format:
single contig of closed chromosome
multifasta file with closed chromosome and plasmids from the same isolate
multi-contig files (whole genome shotgun)
Each file should correspond to a single isolate.
Submitters are requested to control for the quality of the submitted assemblies, as no check will be made by the curators, and will be considered responsible for the quality of submitted data. Genome sequences consisting of high numbers of contigs (> 700) or resulting in many incomplete alleles, will not be accepted. Assemblies based on low coverage sequencing are discouraged (submitters will be requested to provide the average coverage).
Submission of whole genome sequences should be accompanied by the standard isolate submission template file.
