Exporting GUDMAP data
Data files displayed on a record page may be downloaded individually by clicking the link.
The “Export” button, available on every record page, offers many more options.
Here is an example using Study 16-WW2M:
- This record (CSV): Available on every page, this option downloads a CSV file of the metadata. For search results, it will include metadata for all of the results, not just those visible on the current page.
- BDBAG: Available only on detail pages. This option downloads a ZIP file with metadata and information about the files you want to download. This ZIP file is used with the DERIVA client tool to export the files to your desired location (locally or on a remote server). This is recommended for many files or very large files.
- GEO Excel: At the Study level, this option exports an Excel spreadsheet with metadata suitable for uploading to GEO.
- GEO BDBAG (GEO excel and sequencing files): At the Study level, this option exports an Excel spreadsheet with metadata and a BDBAG (to be used with our tool, see below) that is suitable for uploading to GEO.
To use the “BDBAG” or “GEO BDBAG” option, follow the instructions on the Exporting Data page on the documentation wiki.
