New Microbial Genomes in GenBank
In the eight week period between the close dates for GenBank releases 141.0 and 142.0, the non-WGS portion of GenBank grew by 1,335,978,783 base pairs and by 1,855,785 sequence records. The number of base pairs of sequence in release 142 for several organisms of interest is shown in Figure 2.
GenBank release 142 is available on the NCBI FTP site and at two mirror sites.
Primary FTP site at NCBI:
San Diego SuperComputer Center mirror:
Indiana University mirror:
Uncompressed, the Release 142.0 flatfiles require approximately 136 gigabytes while the more compact ASN.1 version requires 119 gigabytes.
