This is the custom hostname given to your Apollo Instance followed by the URL and will be used to access your Apollo Instance (if approved and once created). The name of your Apollo Instance can be based on your research group, the organisms to be hosted or something else suitable that distinguishes your collection of genomes, e.g. or

Principal Investigator

The principal investigator authorises a request for a hosted Apollo instance on behalf of a Research Group or Research Consortium and holds overall responsibility for the hosted Apollo Instance. The Principal Investigator is obliged to ensure all Administrators and End Users adhere to the terms and conditions laid out in the terms and conditions.

Research Organisation/Institute

Project Administrator

The project administrator is authorised by the Principal Investigator to oversee the management of the Apollo instance on behalf of the Research Group or Research Consortium and can add, share or delete any data for any organism associated with the Apollo instance, as well as add/remove any users, and also request the instance is shut down. The project administrator can also be the Principal Investigator. Any Administrator along with the Principal Investigator is obliged to ensure End Users adhere to the terms and conditions.

Research Description

Please provide a brief understanding of your research objectives in relation to your Apollo Instance.
What types of organisms will be hosted in the instance?
more items

Please provide a broad idea of the types of organisms’ genomes that you plan to host on your Apollo Instance, e.g. marine fish or specific species names. If you prefer, please simply include broad groupings such as vertebrate animals, invertebrate animals, vascular plant, non-vascular plants, fungi, ciliates, flagellates, archaea, bacteria, viruses.
Can we list your genome organism name on a public list?

On our website we have a list of hosted organisms with links to the genome in Apollo, if publicly available, and the host website. If you would not like to list a particular organism or all of them, please let us know.
Do you plan to make any of your genomes (reference tracks) publicly available for viewing/browsing?

Data upload can be conducted in three methods:

1. via the web interface (recommended for users with data files with a total size < 1 GB),
2. via the command line (recommended for users with data files > 1 GB confident in the use of command-line data transfers),
3. via
CloudStor (recommended for users with data files > 1 GB who are not confident in command line data transfer or uploads). Please note here your preferred method
Do you have a landing page or website to complement your Apollo Instance?

A landing page associated with your Apollo Instance is optional. A landing page may be used to advertise your research and associated work.
