We have begun the process of building release 87 of the EMBL Nucleotide
Sequence Database on Thursday 1st June 2006

Daily updates:


For those who work with daily updates from the EBI ftp server (or mirror


sites) the last update file for release 86 will be named:


ftp.ebi.ac.uk:pub/databases/embl/new/r87u086.dat.gz

The subsequent update file will contain post-release 87 data and be named:


ftp.ebi.ac.uk:pub/databases/embl/new/r88u001.dat.gz as usual

Cumulative update file:


The cumulative update file in


ftp.ebi.ac.uk:pub/databases/embl/new/cumulative.dat.gz (and cum_* files)


will continue to grow with new data until release 87 is built and is
publicly available - we expect that to be around 16th June.


Cumulative update file:
 The cumulative update file in
 ftp.ebi.ac.uk:pub/databases/embl/new/cumulative.dat.gz (and cum_* files)
 will continue to grow with new data until release 87 is built and is
 publicly available.


When the data is made public the format of the EMBL flat file will undergo a
change: the ID line will have a different structure

see

details.
