Today we have begun to build release 47 of the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence
Database. Below are some details of relevance to those concerned with
managing local databases of sequence updates.

The actual 'freeze' time for EMBL 47 was 6-JUN-1996 08:16 BST

The last daily update file which will be included in release 47 is
ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/embl/new/960606.dat.Z

The naming scheme for update files on the EBI anonymous FTP server will
change today. This scheme is re-posted in a separate message.

As announced previously in database release notes, the following changes are
introduced at release 47 and users will see these from now on in daily
updates.

-  a new flat-file division HUM (for human data) replaces PRI (primate).
   Non-human primate data will be represented in the MAM (other mammal)
   division.

-  a new line-type NI is introduced to contain a stable identifier for a
   nucleotide sequence.

This will almost certainly be the last database release before we have to
move to the new accession number format.

For further detail, see previous release notes in:
    ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/embl/release/relnotes.doc  or
