Navigating the i5k Workspace@NAL: A Resource for Arthropod Genomes
The i5k Workspace@NAL is a genome database tailored toward newly sequenced arthropod genomes and their research communities. With 56 arthropod genomes and counting, the i5k Workspace strives to facilitate public data access, visualization, and community curation across arthropod species. Any researcher with an arthropod genome project who would like to take advantage of the i5k Workspace facilities is encouraged to submit their data. In this chapter, we explain how to use the i5k Workspace@NAL to submit, find, and improve arthropod genomics data.

We would like to thank our users, the i5k coordinating committee, the National Agricultural Library leadership, and the Apollo development team for their support and encouragement of this project. We also thank the NAL Information Systems Division team for logistical support. Funding for this project is from the US Department of Agriculture—Agricultural Research Service; and the USDA-ARS Bee Research Laboratory.
