This table must not be manually created. Users should skip this, and all other tables marked "Built by script" in this summary, preparing only the rest of their datapackage's TSV files (those marked "Prepared by submitter") for submission. Once the "Prepared by submitter" tables are ready, users should then use the C2M2 submission prep script to automatically generate this table (and the other "Built by script" tables) using the information in the "Prepared by submitter" tables.

The ncbi_taxonomy.tsv table will have as many rows as the number of unique NCBI Taxon IDs appearing in the taxonomy_id column of subject_role_taxonomy.tsv.
