Greetings GenBank Users,
Close-of-data for the upcoming GenBank Release 211.0 occurred
Monday December 14, at approximately 1:30am EST.
The subsequently generated GenBank Incremental Update files
nc1214.aso, nc1214.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 211.0 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 to make the release files available by Friday December 18th.
Our apologies for the lack of advance notice about the close date.
