Greetings GenBank Users,
Close-of-data for the upcoming GenBank Release 186.0 occurred
Thursday December 15 2011, at approximately 1:30am EDT.
The subsequently generated GenBank Incremental Update files
nc1215.aso, nc1215.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 187.0 release files, even though they
are "post-close" .
Similarly, the first GenBank Incremental Update generated after
the close date is likely to contain a number of sequence records
that are unchanged, compared to their appearance in the release
We expect that the GenBank 187.0 data files will be made
available shortly, on the evening of Saturday December 17.
Our apologies for the lack of advance notice about the close
