Please review the document by Wednesday, 30 March 2024.

Collections of reference sequences such as reference genome assemblies are fundamental to genomic analysis. To make their analysis reproducible and efficient, we require tools that can identify, store, retrieve, and compare reference genomes, or any collection of reference sequences.

The primary goal of the Sequence Collections (seqcol) project is to standardise identifiers for collections of sequences. Seqcol can be used to identify and distribute genomes, transcriptomes, or proteomes — anything that can be represented as a collection of sequences.
