locus name, sequence length, molecule type, molecular form, division, the date of last release
example LOCUS AB000000 450 bp mRNA linear HUM 01-JUN-2009
Locus name is a unique ID of the entry in the database.
In DDBJ, since July 1996, the locus name has been assigned the same as accession number.
Notice: No information is available on the Master record of MGA data.
According to the value of /mol_type qualifier for source feature, it is described as DNA, RNA, mRNA, rRNA, tRNA, or cRNA.
This column indicates whether molecular form of nucleotide sequence is "linear" or "circular". If the entry is the full length of circular form, "circular" is appeared.
DDBJ classifies entries into 21 divisions as below;
|PRI||primates (other than human)|
|MAM||mammals (other than primates and rodents)|
|VRT||vertebrates (other than mammals)|
|INV||invertebrates (animals other than vertebrates)|
|PLN||plants, fungi, plastids (eukaryotes other than animals)|
|BCT||bacteria (including both Eubacteria and Archaea)|
|PAT||sequence data related to patent application
The data those which Japan Patent Office (JPO), United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO),
European Patent Office (EPO), and Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) collected, processed and released.
|ENV||sequences obtained via environmental sampling methods|
|SYN||synthetic constructs; artificially constructed sequences|
|EST||expressed sequence tags; short single pass cDNA sequences|
|TSA||transcriptome shotgun assemblies; assembled mRNA sequences|
|GSS||genome survey sequences; short single pass genomic sequences|
|HTC||high throughput cDNA sequences;
The sequence submitted from cDNA sequencing projects except for EST. This division is to include unfinished high throughput cDNA sequences, each of which has 5'UTR and 3'UTR at both ends and part of a coding region. The sequence may also include introns. When the sequence becomes finished later, it moves to the corresponding taxonomic division.
|HTG||high throughput genomic sequences
The sequence submitted mainly from genome sequencing projects which regarded a clone as a sequencing unit.
|STS||sequence tagged sites
The tag site for genome sequencing. The information of chromosome, map, PCR_condition is necessary for this division.
|UNA||the data not annotated
The UNA division is not used recently.
|CON||Contig / Constructed
To conjugate a series of entries, such as those submitted from a genome project, each of the three data banks constructs an entry and assign an accession number to a large scale sequence dataset. Such entries are classified into the CON division. The entry in the CON division has the information of joined accession numbers instead of the sequence data. The corresponding entries of the CON entry have been submitted to other divisions.
The current publicized date is described. If the entry is updated and reopened to public site, this date will be changed.
