The international nucleotide sequence database collaboration
(DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank) is pleased to announce the following improvement
to its submission system.

In the past, the editorial policies of several journals required
that submitters send their data to one specific databank. As from
today, submitters may send their nucleotide sequence data to any of
the database groups (DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank) irrespective of the journal
in which the data are expected to be published.

Any given data set should be submitted to *only* one of the databases.
The submitter then need to interact only with this database which in
turn will be responsible for sharing the data with the other groups.

A primary goal of the submission databases is to present your data to
the public at the same time as the sequence appears in print.
Therefore, we remind submitters that when they request data to be held
in confidence pending publication, they need to inform the databases
as soon as possible of the date of the upcoming publication.

Researchers who detect a pulished sequence they cannot find in the
latest release of the nucleotide sequence databases can also assist in
the release of this data by notifying DDBJ, EMBL or Genbank at the
addresses shown below.
