SRA explorer allows you to filter SRA data based on different criteria under GOLD, Text,
Scientific Name, Library Source, Sequencing Instrument and Sequencing Strategy categories.
Besides exploring SRA data you can also filter for projects already imported into GOLD or
not yet imported into GOLD.
For example, using this SRA explorer, you may search for Soil metagenomes from SRA that are
already in GOLD, were generated on Illumina platform with “Metagenomic” Library Source and “WGS”
library Strategy. To perform the above search, you would select filters as shown below:
Project GOLD ID → true
Scientific Name → soil metagenome
Library Source → METAGENOMIC
Instrument → Select all Illumina Instrument options
Sequencing Strategy → WGS
