Correction of ERA data related to the SRA submission

Posted by SJuenemann on 02 Aug 2012 at 08:01 GMT

There is a small error within the ERA data of the sequence datasets submitted to the EBI Sequence Read Archive (accession number ERP001440):

http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena/...

The attribute 'age' of the GSC metadata were wrongly given for each of the eight patient samples. For the SRA samples ERS139358 to ERS139365 the correct values are as follows: 65, 65, 45, 45, 42, 42, 64 and 64.

A corresponding request to he submission staff of the EBI SRA was already initiated and a correction is pending.
