Greetings GenBank Users,

and GI identifiers one week ago struck again last night,
affecting 31 records in the nc0208 GenBank update. Here are the

Patched nc0208 GbUpdate files in which these 31 records have
been removed were installed on our FTP server at 8:37pm EST
on Tuesday, February 8:


If the records successfully loaded into your system in spite of
the invalid GI values and the version number regression, then
we suggest that you simply wait for the next incremental GbUpdate.
These records will be included, with corrected version numbers
and GIs.

However, because the repairs to some of our software which address
this problem are still under QA, we're shutting down the GenBank
Update for one evening. The nc0209 update will not be generated.
Which means the corrected versions of the 31 records won't be
available until early Thursday morning, via the nc0210 update.

Due to their sizes, we did not patch the cumulative GbUpdate
files. The erroneous records will be fixed there as well when
the next CU rebuild completes (probably near 10:00am on Thursday
morning, after the nc0210 update has been built).

Our apologies for the inconvenience that this problem has caused.
