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:
 - 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
 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 !).
