ready FAANG metadata sample specification standard

General Information
The FAANG metadata sample specification document describes the principles and structure for the FAANG metadata guidance. The main goal of the FAANG standards is to ensure all FAANG samples are well described and that the description is well structured. We support the MIAME and MINSEQE guidelines, and aim to convert them to a concrete specification. The FAANG project will establish an infrastructure capable of efficiently analyzing genome-wide functional data for animal species.

Implementing Databases (2)
BioSample at the European Bioinformatics Institute
The BioSamples database aggregates sample information for reference samples (e.g. Coriell Cell lines) and samples for which data exist in one of the EBI's assay databases such as ArrayExpress, the European Nucleotide Archive or PRIDE. It provides links to assays an specific samples, and accepts direct submissions of sample information.

BioSample at the NCBI
The BioSample database stores submitter-supplied descriptive information, or metadata, about the biological materials used in experimental assays, from which data stored in NCBI’s primary data archives are derived.
