CLC Metadata tables can be created in several ways:
- Import metadata from an Excel, CSV or TSV format file using the Import Metadata () tool, described in Importing metadata.
- As an output from workflows (Workflow Result Metadata), described in Workflow Result Metadata tables.
- By selecting rows of an existing CLC Metadata Table, right-clicking over the selected rows and choosing the option Create New Metadata Table... (). Data associated with those rows will also be associated to the rows of the new CLC Metadata Table.
A template workflow for importing sequence data with associated metadata can be found in the Preparing Raw Data folder in the Template Workflows section of the Toolbox (see Import with Metadata).
