Title: European Nucleotide Archive
Title abbreviated: ENA
Title alternative: The European Nucleotide Archive
Creator: European Bioinformatics Institute <Cambridge>
Abstract: The European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) captures and presents information relating to experimental workflows that are based around nucleotide sequencing. A typical workflow includes the isolation and preparation of material for sequencing, a run of a sequencing machine in which sequencing data are produced and a subsequent bioinformatic analysis pipeline. ENA records this information 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). Data arrive at ENA from a variety of sources. These include submissions of raw data, assembled sequences and annotation from small-scale sequencing efforts, data provision from the major European sequencing centres and routine and comprehensive exchange with our partners in the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC). ENA is made up of a number of distinct databases that includes EMBL-Bank, the newly established Sequence Read Archive (SRA) and the Trace Archive each with their own data formats and standards.
