[Genbank-bb] GenBank 194.0 Close-Of-Data

Greetings GenBank Users,

Close-of-data for the upcoming GenBank Release 194.0 occurred
Wednesday February 13th, at approximately 1:30am EST.

The subsequently generated GenBank Incremental Update files
nc0213.aso, nc0213.flat, etc. contain data through the close.

Note: Release processing often does not begin until sometime during
business hours on the close date. As a result, a number of sequence
records processed *after* 1:30am are likely to be present in the
GenBank 194.0 release files, even though they are "post-close" .

Similarly, the first GenBank Incremental Update generated after
the close date is likely to contain a number of sequence records
that are unchanged, compared to their appearance in the release

We had hoped to make the GenBank 194.0 data files available on 
Friday February 15th, but a problem with one of the database dumps
pushed that date back a day. We expect to make the data files 
available on the evening of Saturday Feb 16th.

Our apologies for the lack of advance notice about the close date.

Mark Cavanaugh
