2017-06-22New: Scheduled maintenance (9:30-12:00, 28th, June)

From 9:30 to 12:00 (planned), 28th, June, the DRA, BioProject and BioSample submission and search services will be unavailable due to scheduled maintenance.

The BioProject database represents a higher order organization of research projects and the corresponding data which is deposited into several archival databases maintained by members of INSDC. Data submitted to INSDC-associated databases cross-reference the BioProject identifier to support navigation between the project and the project’s datasets. The BioProject record has information about a project’s scope, material, objectives, funding source and general relevance categories. The BioProject resource is a redesigned, expanded, replacement of the NCBI Genome Project resource.

The DDBJ BioProject issues accession numbers with the prefix 'PRJD' to the submitted projects. Public project data are exchanged with the EBI and NCBI.
