ready Sequence Read Archive


General Information
The Sequence Read Archive (SRA) stores raw sequencing data from the next generation of sequencing platforms Data submitted to SRA. It is organized using a metadata model consisting of six objects: study, sample, experiment, run, analysis and submission. The SRA study contains high-level information including goals of the study and literature references, and may be linked to the INSDC BioProject database.
