What is data type?

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, please also do the following procedure.
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.
