Hi all,

I can't seem to find a reliable current estimate of the total 
number of bases in all the different sequences stored in 
readily accessible databases (genbank, embl...). Also, 
from the last genembl release, I gather there are now about 
180'000 gene sequences available...Is that it?
Guesses, insights and pointers?
Thank you for your time
