BioData Lab Handbook
The BioData "Lab Handbook" has information especially relevant for laboratories that will be delivering (uploading) taxonomic identification and enumeration results to BioData. The Lab Handbook provides information about how laboratories use BioData, the data that laboratories download to support sample processing, and requirements for result data sets that laboratories upload to the System.
