 Thank you for all over the world.
A 9.0-magnitude earthquake hit the East Japan on March 11, 2011. The large earthquake generated tsunamis that caused horrible damage to a wide range of coastal areas in the East Japan. Just after the earthquake, people worldwide expressed sympathy and began various supports for the devastated districts. We appreciate warm supports from all over the world.

 Adding patent number and sequence number on DEFINITION line
We modified the DEFINITION format of flat file from Japan Patent Office (JPO) and Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO).
The patent publication/application number and sequence number was set on the head of DEFINITION line.

Revision example for DEFINITION line:
(Old format)
DEFINITION Genetic Makers Expressed in Tumors.

(New format)
DEFINITION JP 2010599999-A/1: Genetic Makers Expressed in Tumors.

We distributed the revised data from following site.
(Nucleic acid sequence data)
Please get the revised data from Release 85.0 site. They will be reflected sequentially from getentry, ARSA and BLAST.
  Patent file name: ddbjpat**.seq.gz
  **: file number

(Amino acid sequence data)
Please get the revised data from DDBJ anonymous FTP site. They have been already reflected from getentry and BLAST.
  JPO file: jpo_ddbj_aa.seq.gz
  KIPO file: kipo_ddbj_aa.seq.gz
