Globus is a data management and file transfer system that can facilitate bulk upload of data (either large data files or a large number of files) into your KBase account.
If you have a Globus account and want to use Globus to copy data to your KBase account, you will first need to install Globus Connect Personal and create a Globus Connect Personal Endpoint (see https://docs.globus.org/how-to/ for instructions). You can then click the link in the Import tab that says “Or upload to this staging area by using Globus Online.”
Set the “To” endpoint to “KBase Bulk Share”, which is your staging area. Set the “From” Endpoint to the location of the data you want to transfer–for example, you could choose “jgi#portal” to access JGI data. If you don’t see a directory with your name (as in the example above) add /username (for example /nharris for the user above) to the Path for the KBase endpoint.
This page has more information about how to add data to your KBase account so you can analyze it.
