Whole Genome Shotgun Submissions

Metadata Updated: October 1, 2022

Whole Genome Shotgun (WGS) projects are genome assemblies of incomplete genomes or incomplete chromosomes of prokaryotes or eukaryotes that are generally being sequenced by a whole genome shotgun strategy. WGS projects may be annotated, but annotation is not required. NCBI has a Prokaryotic Genomes Annotation Pipeline that may be requested at the time the genome files are submitted to GenBank. This pipeline generates a submission-ready annotated file that is posted back to the submitter for review and which the submitter could edit prior to data release.

The public WGS projects are at the list of WGS projects. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Traces/wgs/
