Quick guide

This is an overview of the submission process. Please read through the steps outlined below before you fill in the submission request form. If you have questions or comments, please write to the FEGA Sweden Helpdesk.


FEGA Sweden is not yet operational. We are currently piloting the submission process with a few selected datasets. Our initial focus will be to support submission of sequence data and variants. Any changes to the status of the repository will be announced on the FEGA Sweden website.

  1. Create a submission request

If you consider FEGA Sweden to be the right place for your data, please fill in the submission request webform. The FEGA Sweden Helpdesk will evaluate your request and get back to you regarding how to proceed.

  1. Create a submission account at EGA

Once your submission request has been accepted, FEGA Sweden Helpdesk will instruct you on how to create a submission account at EGA. This account will enable you to log in to the Submitter Portal and the DAC Portal.

  1. Register Study, Sample, DAC and Policy

Use the Submitter Portal to register your Study and Samples and use the DAC Portal to register Data Access Committee (DAC) and Policy (including a Data Access Agreement).

  1. Upload data

For details, see our upload instructions.

  1. Register Experiments and Runs

Associate each data file with a registered sample and study by linking files to samples in the Submitter Portal. Details of the experimental procedure you followed must be provided.

  1. Finish your submission

Group your runs/analysis into datasets and link them to your new or existing Data Access Committee (DAC) and Policy (including a Data Access Agreement, DAA) using the Submitter Portal. Data access requests are made at the dataset level, thus files within a dataset must share release conditions.

  1. Release the data

Instruct the FEGA Sweden Helpdesk to release your study. All registered studies are automatically placed on hold (‘embargoed’) until the named submission or Data Access Committee (DAC) contact instructs the FEGA Sweden Helpdesk for the study to be released.
