Regarding the phrase “after a scheduled DDBJ release”: When, specifically, does this phrase describe? ARSA getentry search
“Newly arrived DDBJ data (new data that have arrived after a scheduled DDBJ release)” are data made publicly available on the next day of the deadline or after for the most recent DDBJ release. The deadlines for the most recent releases are listed in the text of the release notes. For example, if the most recent release were Release 67, then the deadline would be 8/25/2006, as stated below; thus, in this case, “newly arrived DDBJ data” would be data made publicly available after 8/26/2006.
The present release contains the newest data prepared by the DNA Data Bank ofJapan (DDBJ), GenBank (*), and European Molecular Biology Laboratory/EuropeanBioinformatics Institute (EMBL/EBI) as of August 25, 2006. (This statement comes from the release notes for Rel. 67; the remainder of that discussion is omitted here.)

I did not obtain the search results that I was expecting. Did I make a mistake in conducting my search? ARSA BLAST getentry search
The DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank data banks share the sequences stored within each data bank, and in principle all three data banks should contain the same data. However, due to time delays in the inter-data-bank sharing of data released by individual data banks, as well as delays between the time at which data are entered into a data bank and the time at which the data are reflected in the corresponding search service, searches conducted using different services at the similar time on the same day may yield slightly different results. If you do not obtain the search results that you were expecting, time delays of this sort are the most likely culprit; however, for cases requiring a more detailed investigation, please contact the DDBJ via the “Other general questions” section of the contact portal. In this case, make sure to specify the following information:
  • The name of the search program and/or the URL that you used to conduct the search.
  • The search conditions that you used.
  • The date and time at which you conducted the search.
  • Accession number of the entry that should have been found.
  • URL of the search results.
  • Any other relevant information.
Also, please see the sections of this document corresponding to the following questions.
