We have examined vector sequences fortuitously present in the EMBL sequence database as contaminating parts of submitted sequences, and found a sequencing error frequency of 3.55% in this subset of release 27 of the database. We discuss the possibility that this value may be representative for corresponding errors in the database as a whole.
