Submit data to NCBI


Sequence data

  • GenBank

    Genetic sequence database, an annotated collection of all publicly available DNA sequences. Submit Bacterial or Archaeal 16S ribosomal RNA sequences via the 16S rRNA Submission Tool (beta version) wizard. All other submission types should use one of the alternate submission tools (e.g. BankIt, Sequin, tbl2asn, etc.)

  • Genomes (WGS)

    The Whole Genome Shotgun (WGS) database accepts prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes that are draft or incomplete. This submission portal was updated on Feb. 3, 2014, and now accepts fasta sequences. To access submissions started before that date, go to the previous version of the portal.

  • Complete Genomes

    Collection of genomic sequences that are used to represent the genome of an organism.

  • TSA

    Computationally assembled sequences from primary data such as ESTs, traces and Next Generation Sequencing Technologies. TSA sequence records differ from EST and GenBank records because there are no physical counterparts to the assemblies.

  • SRA

    The Sequence Read Archive (SRA) stores raw and aligned sequence data from NextGen sequencing platforms. Use for submissions if you need to upload data using command line or FTP clients.

  • SRA Submissions (Beta)

    New browser-based SRA submission wizard for submissions of less than 300 files. Requires installation of Aspera Connect plugin.

  • GEO

    Next generation sequence submissions for functional genomic studies that examine gene expression, regulation or epigenomics.

Project data

  • BioProject

    A collection of biological data related to a single initiative, originating from a single organization or from a consortium.

Biological materials

  • BioSample

    Descriptions of biological source materials used in experimental assays.

Microarray data

  • dbGaP

    Microarray data from clinical studies that require controlled access.

  • GEO

    Microarray submissions for functional genomic studies that examine gene expression, regulation or epigenomics.



    An electronic version of your peer-reviewed final manuscript for inclusion in PubMed Central.

Clinical data

  • GTR

    Genetic tests for inherited and somatic genetic variations, including newer types of tests such as arrays and multiplex panels.


  • Variation

    Variation resources at NCBI: dbSNP, dbVar and ClinVar. dbSNP represents short variation in any organism including single nucleotide variants, insertions, deletions, and microsatellites. dbVar represents genomic structural variations from studies submitted on any organism or phenotype. ClinVar aggregates information about human sequence variation and its relationship to human health.
