Release 63 of the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Database is available from:
the EBI ftp server and other mirror sites below:
  ftp://ftp.ebi.ac.uk/pub/databases/embl/release           (UK)
  ftp://ftp.dk.embnet.org/pub/databases/embl               (Denmark)
  ftp://ftp.es.embnet.org/pub/databases/embl/release       (Spain)

Release 63 contains 6,760,113 sequences comprising 8,255,674,441
nucleotides, an increase of about 35% over release 62, largely due to the
inclusion of the Human Genome Draft Sequence.

NB: - There are now 47 EST files, and they are organised and named according
      to taxonomy, ie:
        est_fun.dat                           Fungi ESTs
        est_hum1.dat - est_hum20.dat          Human ESTs
        est_inv1.dat - est_inv4.dat           Invertebrate ESTs
        est_mam.dat                           Mammal ESTs
        est_pln1.dat - est_pln5.dat           Plant ESTs
        est_pro.dat                           Prokaryote ESTs
        est_rod1.dat - est_rod13.dat          Rodent ESTs
        est_vrt1.dat - est_vrt2.dat           Vertebrate ESTs   
    - There are now 16 GSS files (gss1-gss16).
    - There are now  6 HUM files (hum1-hum6).
    - There are now 23 HTG files (htg1-htg23).
