There are three primary ways of uploading files to the DNAnexus platform.
- The command
allows you to upload one or more files as well as folders to the platform. For
more detailed information about
dx upload, see the
dx upload page.
- For large or many files, we recommend that you use the
Upload Agent due to its ability to resume previously
interrupted uploads. You can find more information about Upload Agent
- If you are trying to upload a file that is not local but hosted at a publicly
accessible URL, you can use the
URL Fetcher app (platform
login required to access this link). You can launch the app more than once to
upload multiple files in parallel.
Migrating from another service
If the files you wish to upload are not on your local machine but are hosted in
another service, you can migrate your files into DNAnexus. Please note that in
order to migrate files from another service to DNAnexus, you must have an
account on the platform.
The service providers we currently support are:
