Data Submission Process

Once you are ready to submit your data, you will be supported by the Human Cell Atlas data wranglers. We currently use spreadsheets to collect metadata and a command-line tool to transfer the data files to our cloud infrastructure.


In order to process your cellular resolution data, we will request the following information:

  • Unprocessed data files
  • Information on samples
  • Information on experiment and protocols
  • Summary of project and team information
  • Confirmation that data is consented for open access
