We have begun the process of building release 88 of the EMBL Nucleotide
Sequence Database on Thursday 31st August 2006

Daily updates:


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


sites) the last update file for release 88 will be named:


ftp.ebi.ac.uk:pub/databases/embl/new/r88u088.dat.gz


The subsequent update file will contain post-release 88 data and be named:


ftp.ebi.ac.uk:pub/databases/embl/new/r89u001.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 88 is built and is
publicly available - we expect that to be around 15th September 2006.


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 88 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.
