NLM Technical Bulletin, Sep-Oct 2018, GenBank Expanded Accession Formats Coming December 2018

no thumb



In December 2018, GenBank and other International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration members will expand the accession formats used for sequencing projects. Nearly all possible accession numbers using the current, shorter formats have been assigned. Using these longer formats will allow expanded accession ranges and provide greater capacity. The expanded format for Whole Genome Shotgun (WGS), Transcriptome Shotgun Assembly (TSA), and Targeted Locus Study (TLS) sequencing projects will use a six-letter Project Code prefix and a two-digit Assembly-Version number followed by 7, 8, or 9 digits (for example, AAAAAA020000001).
