Data Submission

  • Data templates are Excel, .txt, or .csv worksheets with column headers for the data T3 requires or accepts.
  • The example values can be replaced with your own. Notes about the restrictions for valid data are included in the templates.
  • Once populated, the files can be loaded into T3 using the Curate menu, which is available to registered Sandbox users.
  • To make updates or corrections, edit your file and reload.
  • Please use the wheat or barley Funnyfarm database for test-loading your files. When they're ready, click here to submit them to the T3 Curator for loading into the official database.

In 2009 the Toronto International Data Release Workshop agreed on a policy statement about prepublication data sharing. Accordingly, the data producers are making many of the datasets in T3 available prior to publication of a global analysis. Guidelines for appropriate sharing of these data are given in the excerpt from the Toronto Statement.

I agree to the Data Usage Policy as specified in Toronto Statement.
