Greetings GenBank Users,

Close-of-data for the upcoming GenBank Release 163.0 occurred
on Monday December 11 at approximately 1:30am EST.

The subsequently generated GenBank Incremental Update files
nc1217.aso, nc1217.flat, etc. contain data through the close.

Note: Release processing often does not begin until sometime
during business hours on the close date. As a result, a number
of sequence records processed *after* 1:30am are likely to be
present in the GenBank 163.0 release files, even though they
are "post-close" .

Similarly, the first GenBank Incremental Update that is generated
after the close date is likely to contain a number of sequence
records that are unchanged, compared to their appearance in the
release files.

Our apologies for the lack of advanced notice about the close date.
