* The procedure to transfer the sequence data from KIPO to DDBJ has been established since February 2008.
As the sequence data released by DDBJ is open to the public, DDBJ takes no responsibility for any property or priority issues of the released data.
Therefore, if one is to submit patent related sequence data to a patent office and DDBJ, one should consult the patent office and DDBJ ( ) about the release date from DDBJ, before submission.
If you submit nucleotide sequence data to DDBJ, you get NO patent priority for the data.
DDBJ takes no responsibility for any property or priority issues for patenting.
If necessary, you should consult the patent office, before submitting your data to DDBJ.
Submitting your nucleotide sequence data to DDBJ, EMBL Bank or GenBank does not necessarily guarantee the priority of the data as shown in the following examples.
