Importing Files

When entering many (>10) samples, importing a .csv file is usually more convenient. CSV files require specific formatting, and the quickest way to get this format is to go the the strain database and export a single strain. Open up this file in excel, and fill in the appropriate data into the columns. The date column is somewhat tricky, as the database will only properly read the date entries if they are in YYYY-MM-DD. The easiest way to do this is "format cells" and change number type to "text". Ensure that the file type is still .csv and save the file. Go to the strain database click import and select the file. This method should allow for an easy way to upload large numbers of samples.

 

Important Points

  • In population names, use the minus sign "" character, rather than a hyphen "-" (option-hyphen on Mac). These must be entered consistently for searching to work.
