Vector databases

Tue Dec 1 13:53:00 EST 1992

I am sure this is a FAQ, but as I don't know the FPR (Frequently Produced 
Response), here is my question. There are many requests for vector sequences 
over the network and finding such sequences is a common problem for us. Is 
there a vector equivalent to the Roberts restriction enzyme database? We have 
Vecbase here, but it is a very old version. We can of course use the Genbank 
synthetic DNA group, but not all the sequences we need are in this category. 
We are thinking of building up our own database, but before we recreate the 
wheel, does anybody out there have such a database?
