This page describes how samples can be recorded into Kotka. Currently (Aug 2015) sample management is rudimentary, but will be developed further later. Comments are welcome at kotka(ät)luomus.fi.
Add new sample
First add to Kotka the specimen the sample is taken from.
Samples are added at Specimens > Add sample (Direct link: https://kotka.luomus.fi/samples/add)
You have to give:
Owner of the record: your team, usually
Sample ID: identifier for the sample. Must be in the form of http://id.luomus.fi/JA.1_S1, where http://id.luomus.fi/JA.1 is the specimen the sample is from, 'S' denotes a sample and '1' is a running number.
Specimen ID: The HTTP URI of the specimen the sample is from, e.g. http://id.luomus.fi/JA.1. The specimen has to be recorded to Kotka before connecting samples to it. There can be several samples from one specimen.
You may also give:
Genbank id: identifier, plus additional comments separated by a colon. E.g. "AY123456: comments here". Write multiple id's to their own fields.
Bold id: same as Genbank id
Events: one event per tetxtbox
Sample Location: free form text
