Basic Information

Overview

The ENA captures and presents information relating to experimental workflows that are based around nucleotide sequencing. ENA records the workflows in a data model that covers input information (sample, experimental setup, machine configuration), output machine data (sequence traces, reads and quality scores) and interpreted information (assembly, mapping, functional annotation).
