DDBJ -- the DNA Data Bank of Japan

What you can do:
Search for comprehensive information on genes, proteins, and genomes.
Highlights:
  • The DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ) has collected and released 1,701,110 entries/1,116,138,614 bases between July 2008 and June 2009.
  • A few highlighted data releases from DDBJ were the complete genome sequence of an endosymbiont within protist cells in the termite gut and Cap Analysis Gene Expression tags for human and mouse deposited from the Functional Annotation of the Mammalian cDNA consortium.
  • A novel user announcement service was started using Really Simple Syndication (RSS) to deliver a list of data released from DDBJ on a daily basis.
  • Comprehensive visualization of a DDBJ release data was attempted by using a word cloud program.
  • A new archive for sequencing data from next-generation sequencers, the 'DDBJ Read Archive' (DRA), was launched.
  • For read data registered in DRA, a semi-automatic annotation tool called the 'DDBJ Read Annotation Pipeline' was released as a preliminary step.
  • The pipeline consists of two parts: basic analysis for reference genome mapping and de novo assembly and high-level analysis of structural and functional annotations.
