How to upload FASTA files into KBase.
An assembly file is a single file containing one or more contiguous DNA sequences in FASTA format. It can be uploaded to KBase from your local computer (with file extension .fasta, .fna, .fa, or .fas) or directly from a publicly accessible FTP or HTTP URL.
“Assembly” is the KBase data type for assembled, unannotated DNA sequence contigs or predicted coding sequences. If you want to upload annotated sequences in GenBank or GFF format, please see the Genome page.
Open the Import As pulldown menu to the right of the filename in your Staging Area and select “Assembly.”

Make sure the correct file type is selected and the checkbox is active, then click the “Import Selected” button. The data slide-out will close and an app called “Import FASTA File as Assembly from Staging Area” will be added to your Narrative.

The name of the Assembly file is filled in, as is a suggested name for the Assembly data object that will be created by the import (you can change the Assembly object name). Adjust the minimum contig length if needed and then click the green "Run" button to start the import. When the import is finished, your Data Panel will update to show the new Assembly object, and a report will appear in the Import App.

Assemblies can be imported as one of the supported bulk import types. You can select multiple assemblies simultaneously from the staging area to import them at once. See the bulk import section of the guide to importing data into the Narrative.
