SGN phenotype submission guidelines
SGN hosts a phenotype database for displaying individual plant accessions scored for phenotypic attributes and more (links to genetic maps, QTLs, locus associations).
Each accession is associated with a population, such as introgression lines, mutants, and mapping populations.
SGN users may upload new accessions or populations using our web interface (you will be prompt to login first, and an SGN submitter account is required. Please contact us for for obtaining submitter privileges).
For large datasets we accept batch submissions of files with the following details:
- Description of your population
- contact person (We will create a new submitter account for you if you do not have one already)
accession_id description accession1 free-text description of the phenotype accession2 description goes here . .We will upload your accessions and have the contact person assigned as the owner of all information.
You may also submit any number of images for each one of your accession. Images can be added or deleted from the database at any time. For a large number of images please contact us for mailing a CD or uploading your images to the SGN ftp site. If your filenames do not include the accession name (usually as a prefix, e.g. myAccession1_leaf.jpg) We also require a file with information on your images:
filename1 accession1 filename2 accession1 filename3 accession2 . . .If you have used 'Solanaceae Phenotype' terms for describing your accessions you can submit the annotation in the following format:
accession1 SP000000X accession1 SP000000Y accession1 SP00000ZZ accession2 SP00000XY . . .We will gladly add information and features to the phenotype database upon request!
