Greetings GenBank Users,

Close-of-data for the upcoming GenBank Release 167.0 occurred on
Tuesday August 19 at approximately 1:30am ET.

The subsequently generated GenBank Incremental Update files
nc0819.aso, nc0819,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 167.0 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.
