Change release date of SRA data and associated Project and Samples

CheckYou can change the release date of an unreleased BioProject in the Submission Portal's SRA Data Interface.

Exclamation point Changing the release date for the BioProject results in changing the release date of all associated BioSamples and SRA data across submissions (if data for this Bioproject were deposited in more than one submission).
