This page contains the current definition, format and controlled vocabularly for culture collection qualifier.
The page has been created on Ocober 9, 2013.
Definition: institution code and identifier for the culture from which the nucleic acid sequenced was obtained,
with optional collection code.
Value format: “<institution-code>:[<collection-code>:]<culture_id>”
Please note that institution code and collection code are taken from a controlled vocabulary maintained by the INSDC:
Comment: the /culture_collection qualifier should be used to annotate live microbial and viral cultures,
and cell lines that have been deposited in curated culture collections; microbial cultures in personal or
laboratory collections should be annotated in strain qualifiers;
annotation with a culture_collection qualifier implies that the sequence was obtained from a sample
retrieved (by the submitter or a collaborator) from the indicated culture collection, or that the sequence
was obtained from a sample that was deposited (by the submitter or a collaborator) in the indicated culture
collection; annotation with more than one culture_collection qualifier indicates that the sequence was obtained
from a sample that was deposited (by the submitter or a collaborator) in more than one culture collection.
culture_id and institution_code are mandatory, collection_code is optional.
