Serapis Archival Management System

Serapis manages the ingestion of data into the iRODS-based human genetics data archive at Sanger.

Serapis is a distributed system that gathers metadata required for an archival submission from several sources automatically, as well as providing a way for manual curation of metadata if required. The project is currently functional and in use at Sanger, although as it stands there is currently only a low-level REST interface - the front end UI has not yet been developed.
