The National Omics Data Encyclopedia (NODE) stores raw sequence data from "next-generation" sequencing technologies including 454, IonTorrent, Illumina, SOLiD, Helicos and Complete Genomics. In addition to raw sequence data, NODE now stores alignment information in the form of read placements on a reference sequence.
NODE is PICB primary archive of high-throughput sequencing data and is part of Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Data submitted to any of the three organizations are shared among them.
