FAIRsharing is here! From our first incarnation, BioSharing.org, which focussed on the life sciences, we are growing into FAIRsharing.org, to serve users across all disciplines and support Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) data.

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.
