Release 48 of the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database is built and available via
the following EBI network servers:

 - anonymous FTP server ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/embl/release
 - SRS WWW server http://www.ebi.ac.uk/srs/srsc
 - FASTA server, FASTA at ebi.ac.uk or URL:
                 http://www.ebi.ac.uk/searches/fasta.html
 - email server, NetServ at ebi.ac.uk

Release notes are available in:
 ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/embl/release/relnotes.doc (plain text)
 http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ebi_docs/embl_db/relnotes48/relnotes.html (html)

For those who install local copies of the database, note particularly the
following:
 1. Database files. There is an additional database file called GSS.DAT
    for genome survey sequences, and an additional EST file EST7.DAT.
 2. Release 48 is about 11% bigger than release 47 (by nucleotide count)
 3. Entries containing the new '2+6' accession number format *now* appear
    in the database.
 4. We will update the contents of the update directory on the EBI anonymous
    FTP server ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/embl/new on the evening of Tuesday
    September 10th 17:00 to:
    - remove all pre-release 48 update files.
    - replace the cumulative.dat.Z file by one containing only post-release
      48 data (N.B. it will become smaller !).
