Webin - WWW submissions to the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database

Most journals require submission of sequence information to the 
International Sequence Databases DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank prior to 

Webin is the preferred WWW Sequence Submission Tool for submitting
nucleotide sequence data and associated biological information to the
EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database at the European Bioinformatics
Institute (EBI).

To access WebIn at the EBI please use the following URL:


Note: It is only necessary to submit to one database, without regard to
where the sequence will be published. Data are exchanged between EMBL,
GenBank and DDBJ on a daily basis.

Webin guides the user through a sequence of WWW forms allowing the
submission of sequence data and descriptive information in an
interactive and easy way. All the information required to create a
database entry will be collected during this process:

        1  Submitter Information
        2  Release Date Information
        3  Sequence Data, Description and Source Information
        4  Reference Citation Information
        5  Feature Information (e.g. coding regions, regulatory
signals 		   etc.)

When the submission is received, database staff will provide the author
with a unique database accession number to identify the sequence. The
database accession number is included in the manuscript, preferably in 
a footnote on the first page of the article, or as required by
individual journal procedures. This allows the community to retrieve 
the data upon reading the journal article.
