The Genbank submission tool implements BankIT and is thus only designed for simple submissions of a small number of sequences from mRNA, genomic DNA, ncRNA, mitochondria, chloroplasts, plasmids, and some viral or phage genomes.
Sets of sequences from ribosomal RNA (rRNA), rRNA-ITS, and metazoan mitochondrial COX1 can also be submitted via Geneious.
If your submission fails with these types of sequences please contact support.
What you can't submit via Geneious
- Larger genomes requiring Locus_tag or BioProject registration such as bacterial and eukaryotic chromosomes
- Sets of sequences from Influenza, Norovirus, Dengue or SARS-CoV-2. These should be submitted through the Genbank Submission Portal
- ESTs (Expressed Sequence Tags)
- STSs (Sequence Tagged Sites)
- GSSs (Genome Survey Sequences)
- HTGs (High-Throughput Genomic Sequences)
- WGS (Whole Genome Shotgun Sequences)
- TSA (Transcriptome Shotgun Assembly Sequences)
- Raw sequencing reads from next-generation sequencing platforms
For information on submitting these types of sequences, see the NCBI website.
The following data is not accepted by GenBank:
- Noncontiguous sequences
- Primer sequences
- Protein sequences with no underlying nucleotide submission
- Sequence containing a mix of genomic and mRNA sequence
- Sequences without a physical counterpart (consensus sequences)
- Sequences with length less than 200 nucleotides
