Greetings GenBank Users,
Close-of-data for the upcoming GenBank Release 207.0 occurred
Monday April 13, at approximately 1:30am EDT.
The subsequently generated GenBank Incremental Update files
nc0413.aso, nc0413.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 207.0 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
Our apologies for the lack of advance notice about the close date.
We encountered problems while processing GSS and EST sequence records,
so we won't be able to make the release 207.0 data files available
until Thursday, April 16th.
