Release 4 of TREMBL, a protein sequence database supplementing 
the SWISS-PROT Protein Sequence Data Bank


INTRODUCTION
============

TREMBL is a protein sequence database supplementing the SWISS-PROT
Protein Sequence Data Bank. TREMBL contains the translations of all 
coding sequences (CDS) present in the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence 
Database not yet integrated in SWISS-PROT. TREMBL can be considered 
as a preliminary section of SWISS-PROT. For all TREMBL entries 
which should finally be upgraded to the standard SWISS-PROT 
quality, SWISS-PROT accession numbers have been assigned.


RELEASE 4.0 OF TREMBL
=====================

This TREMBL release is created from the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence
Database release 51 and contains 139'208 sequence entries, 
comprising 37'836'288 amino acids. 


TREMBL is split in two main sections; SP-TREMBL and REM-TREMBL:

SP-TREMBL (SWISS-PROT TREMBL) contains the entries (116'769) which
should be eventually incorporated into SWISS-PROT. SWISS-PROT 
accession numbers have been assigned for all SP-TREMBL entries. 

SP-TREMBL is organized in subsections:

fun.dat (Fungi):                3757 entries
hum.dat (Human):                5605 entries
inv.dat (Invertebrates):       15940 entries
mam.dat (Other Mammals):        2081 entries
mhc.dat (MHC proteins):         2694 entries
org.dat (Organelles):           8213 entries
phg.dat (Bacteriophages):        961 entries
pln.dat (Plants):               7776 entries
pro.dat (Prokaryotes):         26576 entries
rod.dat (Rodents):              5551 entries
unc.dat (Unclassified):          279 entries
vrl.dat (Viruses):             34508 entries
vrt.dat (Other Vertebrates):    2828 entries


REM-TREMBL (REMaining TREMBL) contains the entries (22'439) that we do 
not want to include in SWISS-PROT. 


WEEKLY UPDATES OF TREMBL
========================
Weekly cumulative updates of TREMBL are available by anonymous FTP and 
from the EBI SRS server.


ACCESS/DATA DISTRIBUTION
========================

FTP server:     ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/trembl
SRS server:     http://www.ebi.ac.uk/srs/srsc

TREMBL is also available on the SWISS-PROT CD-ROM.
SP-TREMBL is searchable on the FASTA server of the EBI and will be soon 
searchable on the BLITZ server of the EBI.
