A Brief Outline of DDBJ (DNA Data Bank of Japan)
We, DDBJ, began a DNA data bank activity in Japan in 1986 with
endorsement of the Ministry of Education, Science, and Culture of
Japan and representative Japanese molecular biologists. From the
beginning, it was intended that DDBJ would operate as one of the
International DNA data banks, with the EMBL Data Library in Europe
and GenBank/NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) in
the USA as the two other members.
Consequently, we have been collaborating with these two data banks in
many aspects through daily exchanges of messages and data through
international networks, and by holding two annual meetings, the
International DNA Data Banks Advisory Meeting and the International
DNA Data Banks Collaborative Meeting.
DDBJ is the sole DNA data bank in Japan, which is officially
certified to collect DNA sequences from researchers and which can
issue accession numbers to data submitters. We collect data mainly
from Japanese researchers, but of course accept data and issue
accession numbers to researchers in any other countries. Data
submission via E-mail is preferable, but submission via floppy
diskettes is also accepted. We exchange collected data with the EMBL
Data Library and GenBank/NCBI on a daily basis, so that the three
data banks share virtually the same data at any moment.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us.

DNA sequence files are located by its ACCESSION number.
Currently, you can not find sequence by its secondary accession number.
For example, you can find D00066 in /dna/D/00/06/D00066 directory.
ftp> cd /dna/D/00/06/D00066
250 CWD command successful.
ftp> ls -la
200 PORT command successful.
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for /bin/ls.

An extension character, D,E,L,N shows the data source.
For example, D00066.D is from DDBJ, D00066.E is from EMBL data lib.,
D00066.L(N) is from GenBank.
IF YOU DO NOT FIND THE ACCESSION NUMBER ON THE SERVER:
Authors often request that data be held in confidence until after
publication even though they have already been assigned an accession
number for their data. This adds an additional delay in data release
because the data bank staff must ascertain that the data has appeared
in print. If you have a reference to sequence data but can not
retrieve the data from the server, please send the literature
reference and accession number (or locus name) to:
ddbjupdt at ddbj.nig.ac.jp
and the data will be released to the server as soon as possible.
DNA and Protein sequence data are maintained by DDBJ staffs.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact, DNA Data Bank
of Japan (DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank International Nucleotide Sequence Database).
