RNA-Seq Metadata Schema

Maintained by Stephen Fisher License (pdf)

The Kim and Eberwine labs created the following schema to capture what we consider to be necessary metadata for RNA-Seq samples. This schema was derived in part through the efforts of the NIH Single Cell Analysis Program (SCAP-T) and the SCAP-T project used a variant of this schema.

Metadata is captured to document the subject, pre-sequencing sample preparations, sequencing, and post-sequencing analysis. The schema is designed as a relational database, although ancillary tables have been left out of the schema (e.g. table mapping samples to flowcells).

This schema was last updated July 2017.
