GenomeRNAi - a database for RNAi phenotypes and reagents

Submission of RNAi phenotype and/or reagent data

Download data template

An Excel template for submission of RNAi data into the GenomeRNAi database is available via e-mail. Please use this form to contact us and we'll send you a download link. Or register straight away to obtain your own submission space (see below) and download the data template there.

Have you published or are you about to publish RNAi screening data? Would you like to increase the visibility of your data in the RNAi community and beyond? We welcome direct data submissions from authors into GenomeRNAi, the most up-to-date database for RNAi phenotypes and reagents in human and drosophila.

Why submit data to GenomeRNAi?

GenomeRNAi provides high-quality RNAi phenotype data in a structured format, allowing searches and comparisons across multiple screens.

GenomeRNAi is well integrated with other publically available databases, providing links with Entrez Gene identifiers, Ensembl, UniProt, FlyBase and GeneCards. GenomeRNAi data can also be queried via FlyMine.

Direct author submissions are much preferred over curation by a curator team - the authors know the data best! Indeed, we encourage authors to get in touch with us even before publication - we are happy to provide advice in respect to good practice of reporting RNAi phenotype data.

How does it work?

We provide an Excel data template for download. This file contains detailed instructions with regard to our annotation guidelines, with dropdown menus where appropriate, to facilitate straightforward and consistent annotation.

For submitting your data, you get your own file space on the GenomeRNAi website. Just register, and you can upload your completed Excel data sheet. Your file is validated and you'll get notified in case there are any errors. Once uploaded successfully, you can pre-view your data in GenomeRNAi format, send a link to your colleagues or reviewers, and notify us when your data is ready to be reviewed by our curator team.

Our curator team then performs a quality check to make sure the data are complete and consistent with our annotation guidelines. If there are any issues to sort out, the curators get in touch with you.

You decide when your data can be displayed on the public GenomeRNAi website. It will then be included in the following GenomeRNAi release.

Which species can be included in GenomeRNAi?

Currently, GenomeRNAi holds RNAi phenotype data for Homo sapiens and Drosophila melanogaster. Our curator team focusses their efforts into manual curation from the literature on these two species.

However, we are happy to discuss inclusion of other species into GenomeRNAi, if there is interest to submit such data. Do let us know and we can make the necessary arrangements.
