just so you may have the latest numbers (as per Peter's
note ... thanks Peter, I would have missed that!) ... I
present the latest numbers from GenBank ...  They are from
gbrel.txt, which you can find in the /genbank directory 
at the NCBI anonymous FTP site (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)

regards to Peter, Rob and all others,

francis

Over the period 1982 to the present, the number of bases in GenBank
has doubled approximately every 21 months.
