SUMMARY: Many aspects of the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic are enabled by the fast and open publication of SARS-CoV-2 genetic sequence data. The European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) is the European recommended open repository for genetic sequences. In this work, we present a tool for submitting raw sequencing reads of SARS-CoV-2 to ENA. The tool features a single-step submission process, a graphical user interface, tabular-formatted metadata and the possibility to remove human reads prior to submission. A Galaxy wrap of the tool allows users with little or no bioinformatic knowledge to do bulk sequencing read submissions. The tool is also packed in a Docker container to ease deployment. AVAILABILITY: CLI ENA upload tool is available at (DOI 10.5281/zenodo.4537621); Galaxy ENA upload tool at and (development) and; ENA upload Galaxy container at (DOI 10.5281/zenodo.4730785).

The current state of much of the Wuhan pneumonia virus (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 [SARS-CoV-2]) research shows a regrettable lack of data sharing and considerable analytical obfuscation. This impedes global research cooperation, which is essential for tackling public health emergencies and requires unimpeded access to data, analysis tools, and computational infrastructure. Here, we show that community efforts in developing open analytical software tools over the past 10 years, combined with national investments into scientific computational infrastructure, can overcome these deficiencies and provide an accessible platform for tackling global health emergencies in an open and transparent manner. Specifically, we use all SARS-CoV-2 genomic data available in the public domain so far to (1) underscore the importance of access to raw data and (2) demonstrate that existing community efforts in curation and deployment of biomedical software can reliably support rapid, reproducible research during global health crises.
