Mass Submission System (MSS)

If you would like to use MSS, please complete the form below and press the Submit button. Then DDBJ will e-mail to the entered E-mail addresses to inform you how to submit your data. If you do not hear from us within five business days, please contact us at ad_mass

     If you like to submit raw outputs (i.e. not assembled reads) generated from the next generation sequencers(NGS),
     submit to DDBJ Sequence Read Archive (DRA), not to MSS.
For example:
  16S ribosomal RNA sequenced by NGS, not assembled --> DRA
  16S ribosomal RNA sequenced by NGS, assembled --> MSS (here)
  16S ribosomal RNA sequenced by Sanger method --> MSS (here)

* means the item is required to input.

1. Have you ever used this system for your submission?

* Yes No

2. Contact Person Information

* Name Last    First    Middle
* E-mail address
* FAX number
* Affiliation
e.g.) DNA Data Bank of Japan, National Institute of Genetics

3. Information of the person in charge of submitting
(If you are not a contact person, please fill in the following items.)

Name Last    First    Middle
E-mail address
FAX number

4. Outline of your data

* When would you like to release the data?
   Hold until specified date  year month date
     Do not specify the dates from Dec. 29th to Jan. 3rd.
     It is recommended to specify the hold date within three years.
* Number of sequences
* Sequencing Technology
    Sanger (gel/capillary)
     We strongly recommend you to submit the raw sequence data from the next generation sequencer to
        DDBJ Sequence Read Archive (DRA)
* Data type
   Not correspond to the following
   EST full length cDNA (HTC) TSA*1
   GSS complete genome*2 draft genome*2 (WGS or HTG)
In case of either *1 or *2, please take following steps before MSS submission.
Please register your project information in BioProject Database to get BioProject ID.
Please register biological source materials used in experimental assays in BioSample Database to get BioSample ID.
In case of *2
Complete genome or draft genome with feature annotation, you also have to get a locus tag prefix through BioProject submission.
However, even though complete genomes, if the genome sequences are relatively small like as viruses, phages, organelles or plasmids only(i.e without chromosomes), you do not need to get BioProject ID.
* Biological background
   e.g.) 16S rRNA gene sequences from Bacillus bacteria. 1000 bp-1500 bp
