Pluto can help you import large data files from a variety of sources
The first step is to create your experiment. During the "add your data" step, click "other", and click the link under "Import from other storage locations (FTP, GCS, AWS s3)" This will direct you to a form where you can submit the required information to us for import, as seen below):
Large files stored with sequencing vendors and other third parties are often made available to download via FTP. In this case, you can share the FTP credentials you receive from a vendor to by submitting an FTP import form within the experiment creation process (see video above).
AWS and GCP
Add files to an S3 or GCS bucket, provision read access to Pluto (contact your Pluto rep for details), and submit the AWS import form within the experiment creation process the (see video above).
Create a shared Globus collection containing the files you wish to import, Share the collection with firstname.lastname@example.org, and submit the external storage import form within the experiment creation process (see video above).
Other cloud storage (Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, etc)
Create a shared folder containing your files. Share the folder with email@example.com,
and submit the external storage import form within the experiment creation process (see video above).
Import files directly from BaseSpace into your experiments in Pluto by enabling the BaseSpace integration in your Lab Space.
Once enabled, all members of your organization will see the "Import from BaseSpace" option during the FASTQ file upload step on any sequencing-based experiment type:
In the pop-up window, simply navigate into the appropriate BaseSpace project and select the FASTQs you'd like to import.
