Use an NMR-STAR file to bootstrap a new deposition:

  1. upload all your other files first,
  2. upload the NMR-STAR file you want parsed into the deposition last, as an NMR data file containing other kinds of data,
  3. hit "Continue deposition" button to finish with the intial file uploads.

To bootstrap a new deposition from a previous ADIT-NMR session:

  1. login to the previous session.
  2. If it's already deposited, enter your e-mail address and click on "generate preview only" button,
  3. otherwise use "Preview" button at the top of the screen.
  4. Once the "preview" file arrives in your mailbox, upload it to the new deposition as described above.
Note that if the session is already deposited, you can also use the file access interface to download the NMR-STAR file.

NMR-STAR "header" file for the upload can be

  1. an annotated "pre-release" BMRB entry sent to the authors for final review by BMRB annotators. These files have the most information and will populate most fields in the new deposition.
  2. A "preview" file from another ADIT-NMR session: will have what data the other session has.
  3. A published BMRB entry: will not have "private" fields such as contact information filled in. You will have to enter those manually in the interface.

You can edit the file before the upload. If you do, use a plain text editor like Notepad. Please note that Mac OSX Text Edit is not a plain text editor, at least not in its default configuration.

During initial file upload(s), ADIT-NMR will try to extract information from most uploaded files and use it to populate the fields in the deposition.
Note that this overwrites any existing values, so the order in which the files are uploaded can be important.
In addition, ADIT-NMR will recalculate deposition requirements based on the type of data in the uploaded file (for example, if you're uploading assigned chemical shifts, the chemical shift referencing section becomes mandatory), so you should give your bootstrap file a data type that won't turn on unnecessary questions: "other".
Finally, once you leave the intial file upload screen this functionality gets turned off: you may upload more files, but the software won't try to extract data from them. (The assumption is that at this point you've already started manually entering data in the interface and we don't want to overwrite your work.)
That is why you should upload the file you want parsed into the deposition last, before clicking "Continue deposition" button, and give it the "other" data type.
