Greetings GenBank Users,

This is a reminder that the format of the SOURCE and ORGANISM lines
of the GenBank flatfile will change, as previously described, with the
installation of Release 132.0 at the NCBI FTP site.

The incremental and cumulative GenBank Updates will utilize the
new format starting the following day.

We expect to install Release 132.0 on either November 4th or 5th.

Details about the format change can be found in Section 1.4 of the
GenBank release notes:

Mark Cavanaugh
