Just to followup that other parts of the globe can also use the 
addresses quoted in the Appendix 2 of the EMBL data submission 
documentation. As far as I am informed, there is the commitment 
from all EMBL, DDBJ and GENBANK to collaborate on direct submissions - 
please correct me if this is not the case - and there should be 
any new GENBANK entry showing up in EMBL shortly after the submission, 
as was announced also to happen the other way round starting this week 
(i.e., the update files of GENBANK will include EMBL also.).
