Current account system
Bioinformation and DDBJ Center provides three separate account systems, BioProject/BioSample/DRA/GEA (D-way), JGA and AGD. These systems will be integrated into the D-way account with 'group' concept and users will be able to access all services with single D-way account. In the new system, a principal investigator (PI) and a researcher can collaboratively submit and update records within their own D-way accounts, and transfer records to a successor when leaving institute or lab.
Integration to the D-way account
As the first step, the JGA account system will be integrated to the D-way in 29th September, 2020. At the same time, the D-way account will be introduced to the application system of NBDC. After this integration, users will be able to "apply data submission application to NBDC - submit data to JGA" and "apply data use application to NBDC - download JGA dataset" in the same D-way account.
The JGA account migration process is explained below.
When you own JGA account only
If you have JGA account (Account: 'A') only, 'A' is migrated to the D-way. After the integration, in the D-way account, you can use BioProject/BioSample/DRA/GEA as well as JGA/NBDC application systems. If 'A' already exists in the D-way, an new D-way account ID different from that of JGA is created.
After a new D-way account is notified, do NOT create another D-way account to avoid duplication.
When you own D-way account only
When you own D-way account (Account: 'B') only, after the JGA system is integrated to D-way, you can use 'B' in BioProject/BioSample/DRA/GEA as well as JGA/NBDC application systems.
When you own both JGA and D-way accounts
When you own a JGA (Account: 'C') and a D-way account (Account: 'D'). The JGA accounts are merged to the D-way accounts. After the integration, you can use 'D' for BioProject/BioSample/DRA/GEA as well as JGA/NBDC application systems. The JGA data linked to 'C' are transferred to 'D'. The account 'C' will be discontinued.
The AGD account will be integrated to D-way as JGA (planned in 2020).
