Basic Information

Overview

DDBJ is the sole nucleotide sequence data bank in Asia, which is officially certified to collect nucleotide sequences from researchers and to issue the internationally recognized accession number to data submitters. Because they exchange the collected data with EMBL-Bank/EBI and GenBank/NCBI on a daily basis, the three data banks share virtually the same data at any given time.
