DDBJ announce the release of DDBJ Sequence Read Archive(DRA) and DDBJ Trace Archive(DTA) websites.

DDBJ Sequence Read Archive (DRA) is an archive for primary analysis data from next-generation sequencers. DDBJ Trace Archive (DTA) is an archive for DNA sequence chromatograms (traces), base calls, and quality estimates for single-pass reads from capillary sequencers. The DRA and DTA collect the data in a collaboration with NCBI and EBI.

This DRA/DTA website describes the instructions for the data submission, file transfer, etc. This website will be helpful for the submission of the data from next-generation and/or capillary sequencers. Please refer them when you submit such data.

Moreover, in the DTA site, the data search (submitted via DDBJ) is available.

The DRA and DTA are a part of National project of integrating life science databases.
