### SGN phenotype submission guidelines

SGN hosts a phenotype database for displaying individual plant accessions scored for phenotypic attributes and more (links to genetic maps, QTLs, locus associations).
Each accession is associated with a population, such as introgression lines, mutants, and mapping populations.
For large datasets we accept batch submissions of files with the following details:

• Organism
• contact person (We will create a new submitter account for you if you do not have one already)
       accession_id  description
accession1    free-text description of the phenotype
accession2    description goes here
.
.

We will upload your accessions and have the contact person assigned as the owner of all information.

You may also submit any number of images for each one of your accession. Images can be added or deleted from the database at any time. For a large number of images please contact us for mailing a CD or uploading your images to the SGN ftp site. If your filenames do not include the accession name (usually as a prefix, e.g. myAccession1_leaf.jpg) We also require a file with information on your images:
  filename1   accession1
filename2   accession1
filename3   accession2
.
.
.

If you have used 'Solanaceae Phenotype' terms for describing your accessions you can submit the annotation in the following format:

accession1  SP000000X
accession1  SP000000Y
accession1  SP00000ZZ
accession2  SP00000XY
.
.
.

We will gladly add information and features to the phenotype database upon request!
