Central registration place for BAM, BigBed and BigWig files

Jonathan Warren

If you have "big" file data that you think would be useful to other researches you can now register them with the DAS Registry at http://www.dasregistry.org

For further in formation see below:

You can now add bigfile formats such as BAM, BIGBED and BIGWIG using the bigfile-bam, bigfile-bigbed and bigfile-bigwig capabilities types of the DAS Registry. These files are not served from a DAS server but are just available from the web (Thus the urls for these “sources” are not expected to have other capabilities such as a sources command or a format command). People can use the meta data associated with a DAS source or in this case a bigfile to advertise the availability of the file to other researchers. The additional information includes a coordinate system e.g. GRCh_37, Chromosome, Homo sapiens so others know what is the correct sequence to attach the files to. Also descriptions and helpUrls etc.

To register a big file register yourself with the DAS Registry (simple email/pass system here https://www.dasregistry.org/loginFirst.jsp) , then go to the register a service page Register new  select the second option “registering a plain file..” then add the meta data for your data file.

Once you have registered your file it will appear in the https://www.dasregistry.org/listSources.jsp page – you can filter to show only the bigfile format of the appropriate type using the capabilities drop down.

Any problems or suggestions please contact [hidden email]

Many thanks

All of the data generated in your IT infrastructure is seriously valuable.
Why? It contains a definitive record of application performance, security
threats, fraudulent activity, and more. Splunk takes this data and makes
sense of it. IT sense. And common sense.
