Data Submission

Please contact us to arrange transfer of data to CottonGen from peer reviewed work.  Below lists new template files may be used in marker, genetic map, QTL, genotype and phenotype data submissions. We recommend you contact us before filling in the template so that we can work closely with you to ensure this process is expediated easily and quickly. If you have other data types such as transcriptome data or genome data, please contact us and we will work with you to get the data accessible in CottonGen.

    • Column 'Download' gives link to download template
    • Columns 'Marker Data' to 'Phenotype Data' provides potential templates that should/may be used in the dataset submission
    • Column headings followed by an * are clickable and show a group of templates with example data, click to download and view
    • ** 'need' indicates that template is required
      ** 'may need' indicates that template is required when you have the template related data (for example, if your map contains MTL, then template mtl_cotton is required)
