The European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) maintains and distributesthe EMBL Nucleotide Sequence database, Europe's primary nucleotidesequence data resource. The EBI also maintains and distributes theSwiss-Prot Protein Sequence database, in collaboration with AmosBairoch of the University of Geneva. Over fifty additional specialistmolecular biology databases, as well as software and documentationof interest to molecular biologists are available. The EBI networkservices include database searching and sequence similarity searchingfacilities.brbrFrom release 82, EMBLWGS (Whole Genome Shotgun) entries are no longer included in the EMBL release indexing. This means that this database (EMBLWGS) is a seperate library. If you want to retrieve WGS entries only, search the keyword field for 'wgs'.BRBRpAccession numbers are hyperlinked in some views that, when clicked, willtake the user to the a href=http:www.ebi.ac.ukemblsvaSequence Version Archive Servera.
The EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database (URL: a href=http:www.ebi.ac.ukemblhttp:www.ebi.ac.ukembla) is maintained at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) in an international collaboration with the DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ) and GenBank at the NCBI (USA). Data is exchanged amongst the collaborating databases on a daily basis. The major contributors to the EMBL database are individual authors and genome project groups. Webin is the preferred Web-based submission system for individual submitters, whilst automatic procedures allow incorporation of sequence data from large-scale genome sequencing centres and from the European Patent Office (EPO). Database releases are produced quarterly. Network services allow free access to the most up-to-date data collection. For sequence similarity searching a variety of tools (e.g. Fasta, BLAST) are available.
