Due to planned electrical maintenance work at EBI 26th - 30th August, there will be wide-spread disruptions to EGA services.

All submission services will be unavailable, including submission upload dropboxes. The EGA Helpdesk (ega-helpdesk@ebi.ac.uk) will also be unavailabe. Download services are not likely to be affected.

Normal service should be resumed by the 31st August.

The European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) is a service for permanent archiving and sharing of all types of personally identifiable genetic and phenotypic data resulting from biomedical research projects.
