Add Analysis Workflows to Existing Biosamples

You can use the biosample workflow file to add new analysis workflow instructions to existing biosamples.

1. Create a CSV file as follows. See Biosample Workflow File Format for more information about the template file and field requirements.
  1. Download or open a biosample workflow template.
  2. Complete the following fields for each biosample.
    • Biosample Name—The unique identifier for the source DNA.
    • [Optional] Prep Request—The name of the library prep kit to use for preparing the biosample.
      The name must exactly match an existing library prep kit.
    • [Optional] Required Yield Gbp—The required yield for the prep request.
    • Analysis Workflow—The name of the analysis workflow.
    • [Optional] Analysis Group—For analysis workflows that use data from more than one biosample, the name of the analysis group.
    • [Optional] Sample Label—For analysis workflows that use data from more than one biosample, the sample label.
    • [Optional] Delivery Mode—The delivery instructions for the analysis, Deliver or Do Not Deliver.
    • NOTE

      All template columns must be present in the biosample workflow file, but the Default Project cannot be changed using a biosample workflow. If the biosample already exists, this column is ignored. For information about changing the default project for a biosample, see Change Default Project.

  3. Save the file.
2. From the biosamples master list, select the File drop-down arrow, point to Upload, and then select Biosample Workflow.
3. In the Upload a Biosample Workflow dialog, add your biosample workflow file.

BaseSpace Sequence Hub validates the file and identifies any errors.
