Paul Gilna at LANL is in charge of GenBank interactions with journal
editors and may care to contribute.  The concept of using the database
as a medium for publication has been suggested by the GenBank crew for
several years now.  GenBank's AuthorIn software is designed to provide
a certain level of "automatic review" to assist in this process, and
LANL is developing other sequence validation software for these
purposes.  There are also sociological issues that need resolution
here and Paul has been working with journal editors on a variety of
important issues for some time now.
