DBKey necessary?

Hi team,

A very quick question from a novice.

Is a populated DBkey necessary? I appear to have missed this following uploading files…

Thanks hope you all are having a smashing Friday,

Hi @s.murtough

It depends on the data’s datatype and what tools you plan to use. Some tools will require a database assigned (dbkey) and for those that do, not necessarily for all inputs. And just to complicate it more, there is a method to set up a custom reference genome (or, other “-ome”) so that it has a custom “dbkey” that can be assigned to datasets.

If you want to explain more about your data and the tools you plan to use, we can offer more specific help.

Happy Friday, too! :slight_smile:
