The Rice Annotation Project Database (RAP-DB) Dec.15, 2005
The RAP-DB, database for highly curated rice annotations was developed and opened to the public by Natioanal Institute of Agrobiological Sciences, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, and National Institute of Genetics.

The Rice genome (Oryza sativa ssp. japonica cultivar Nipponbare) was completely sequenced by the IRGSP (International Rice Genome Sequencing Project), in December 2004, and Japan has been taking a leading role of this project. Now rice researchers are in new paradigm, namely "post-genome" (IRGSP, Nature. 2005 Aug 11;436 (7052):793 - 800 ).

With the completion of the rice genome sequencing, an annotation project has been promoted with the aim of annotating and manually curating all the genes in the rice genome, gathering numbers of rice researchers and annotators from all over the world (Itoh et al., manuscript in preparation).

The Rice Annotation Project Database (RAP-DB) is to feedback this invaluable information to the rice research community (Ohyanagi et al., Nucleic Acids Research Database Issue 2006, in press). The RAP-DB has two different types of annotation viewers, search features with keyword or sequence homology. By connecting the annotations to other rice genomics data, such as full-length cDNAs and Tos17 mutant lines, the RAP-DB serves as a "hub" for rice genomics.

All of the resources can be accessed through http://rapdb.lab.nig.ac.jp/.

INSD-XML formatted periodical release data available at FTP Nov. 17, 2005
The nucleotide sequence database collected and maintained by DDBJ is quarterly released to the public at online anonymous FTP site.DDBJ has provided 4 types (Flat file format, FASTA format, DDBJ-XML format and CDS sequences) data so far.

Additionally, since DDBJ Release62 (June 2005) the INSD-XML formatted periodical release data have been also provided by DDBJ. The INSD-XML formatted data had been available only daily update part since April 29, 2005.

The INSD-XML is one of the DTD (Data Type Definition) commonly used by the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC) which is comprised of DDBJ, EMBL, and GenBank, for their data releases.Although the INSD-XML was released to the public, the INSDC will confirm that there are no problems in the data exchange for all entries, and also will ensure that it is possible to write/read XML documents in a common format. Therefore, in some cases, DTD itself might be changed and/or some changes might be made at the stage of the development from DTD to XML document. The version number is shown in the DTD file.

The anonymous FTP directories and the file names released at DDBJ web pages are as shown below.

Use of the INSD-XML at FTP

URL: ftp://ftp.ddbj.nig.ac.jp/ddbj_database/ddbj/xml/insd/

DTD for the INSD-XML (INSD_INSDSeq.dtd) is located in the same directory.

Use of the INSD-XML at getentry

If you specify "INSD-XML" as output format in DNA database retrieval, you will obtain the data in the INSD-XML format.

DDBJ-XML was designed aiming for the generation of documents making easier computer program manipulation and being also readable by humans. It is based on the concept of "flat file format", which has been widely used so far.

Meanwhile, INSD-XML was designed focusing on Features/qualifiers structure rather than having familiarity with the Flat File format.

Public collections of DNA and RNA sequence reach 100 gigabases Oct. 4, 2005
The world's three leading public repositories for DNA and RNA sequence information have reached 100 gigabases (100,000,000,000 bases; the 'letters' of the genetic code) of sequence. Thanks to their data exchange policy, which has paved the way for the global exchange of many types of biological information, the three members of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC, www.insdc.org),EMBL-Bank (Hinxton,UK), GenBank (Bethesda, USA) and the DNA Data Bank of Japan(Mishima, Japan) all reached this milestone together.

Takashi Gojobori, Director of the Center for Information Biology and DNA Data Bank of Japan, says: "The INSDC has laid the foundations for the exchange of many types of biological information: as we enter the era of systems biology and researchers begin to exchange complex types of information such as the results of experiments that measure the activities of thousands of genes, or computational models of entire processes, it is important to celebrate the achievements of the three databases that pioneered the open exchange of biological information."

Graham Cameron, Associate Director of EMBL's European Bioinformatics Institute, says "This is an important milestone in the history of the nucleotide sequence databases; From the first EMBL Data Library entry made available in 1982 to today's provision of over 55 million sequence entries from at least 200,000 different organisms, these resources have anticipated the needs of molecular biologists and addressed them - often in the face of a serious lack of resources."

David Lipman, Director of the National Center for Biotechnology Information, adds: "Today's nucleotide sequence databases allow researchers to share completed genomes, the genetic make-up of entire ecosystems, and sequences associated with patents. The INSDC has realized the vision of the researchers who initiated the sequence database projects, by making the global sharing of nucleotide sequence information possible."

EMBL-Bank and GenBank had started International Nucleotide Sequence Database activities in 1980, and DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ) had joined in its activities as a third collaborative partner in 1987. DDBJ has received data submission from all the countries of the world, mainly from Japan. By exchanging the collected data with another 2 databanks, DDBJ has contributed to the development of International Nucleotide Sequence Database collaboration.

Chimpanzee Genome sequencing completed Oct. 4, 2005
Draft sequence of the chimpanzee genome was analyzed by the Chimpanzee Sequencing and Analysis Consortium, and published in Nature. 2005 Sep 1;437(7055):69-87.

Chimpanzee is the humankind's closest living relative. Comparison of the genomes between human and chimpanzee will assist understanding human specific functions and the mechanism of evolution from primates to human.

The data was submitted to DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank International Nucleotide Sequence Databases as whole genome shotgun (WGS) sequences data which is available via DDBJ getentry system. Or the data is also available by downloading from anonymous ftp of the DDBJ" page or WGS ftp site (AACZ.gz, AADA.gz).

Chimpanzee chromosome 22 DNA sequencing had already been completed by The International Chimpanzee Chromosome 22 Consortium in last May, and the result was published in Nature.
Rice Genome analysis completed Oct. 4, 2005
The Rice genome (Oryza sativa L. ssp. japonica cv. Nipponbare) has been sequenced by the IRGSP (International Rice Genome Sequencing Project), in December 2004, and Japan has been taking a leading role of this project.

Recently, a detailed analysis of the high-quality sequence of the rice genome was featured in Nature 2005 Aug 11;436(7052):793-800.

According to National Institute of Agrobiological Sciences (NIAS) and the Institute of the Society for Techno-innovation of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (STAFF), a total of 37,544 genes were identified. About 71% of these genes are similar to genes found in Arabidopsis, a model experimental dicotyledonous plant, which has been completely sequenced in the year 2000. A total of 2,859 genes (c.a. 8%) did not have homologies with those of Arabidopsis. These genes may be rice-specific or monocot-specific.

The data was submitted to DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank International Nucleotide Sequence Databases and was released under the Accession numbers AP008207 - AP008218. The sequence information is available via DDBJ getentry system.Drs. Takashi Gojobori (Director of CIB-DDBJ) and Hisakazu Iwama (formerly belonged to DDBJ until 2004.10, current affiliation is Associate Professor of Kagawa University) participated in International Rice Genome Sequencing Project, in charge of Annotation and Analysis.

Release of transcript sequences derived from human and mouse with a huge scale Oct. 3rd, 2005
The FANTOM Consortium, which is led by the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research of Japan, has comprehensively studied the mouse genome and transcriptome. On September 2, they published two papers in Science about the integrative analysis of human and mouse transcripts (Science. 2005 Sep;309:1559-63.;Science. 2005 Sep;309:1564-66.).

In these papers, they reported the finding of many protein-coding and non-protein coding transcripts in both mouse and human. They suggested that these non-protein coding RNAs (ncRNAs) regulate the expression of normal transcripts encoding proteins and provide important information associated with the gene expression control mechanism in mammals.

Professor T. Gojobori (Head of Center for Information Biology and DNA Data Bank of Japan; CIB-DDBJ), Associate professor K. Ikeo and their colleagues participated in the FANTOM Consortium from CIB-DDBJ. They are co-authors of the papers mentioned above. In addition, the activities of the Genome Network Project are also related to this project.

Approximately 2,000,000 million EST (expressed sequence tag), about 110,000 HTC (high throughput cDNA sequence), and 8,800,000 MGA (Mass sequence for genome annotation) entries, which were referred to these papers have been already registered and released from DDBJ. All of the data can be retrieved, displayed and acquired by using the DDBJ retrieval tool,getentry.

DDBJ release 62.0 revised as 62.1 Aug. 4, 2005
Duplication of the AE006470 was found in the DDBJ release 62.0 (released on June 2005).

Nature of inconsistency: The entry AE006470 was found in both BCT and CON divisions.

Measures implemented: The AE006470 in the BCT division is the latest one, so we removed the old AE006470 in the CON division and released again on August 4, 2005.

Corrected file: ddbjcon.seq

We DDBJ regret our mistake.

Creation of the ENV division Jun. 14, 2005
Recently, the submissions of the sequences derived from environmental samples have rapidly been increased. To accommodate such submissions, a new division, ENV, has been created.

This division contains the sequences obtained via direct molecular isolation such as PCR, DGGE, or any anonymous method. In the past, the sequences derived from environmental samples belonged to taxonomic divisions, mainly BCT. At DDBJ, the retrofit to transfer relevant entries from taxonomic divisions to the ENV division starts in the periodical release 62 (Jun, 2005), and ends by the periodical release 63 (Sep, 2005). Please note that, during this transitional period, some entries to be placed in the ENV division will be found in other divisions.
Release of INSD-XML formatted data Jun. 10, 2005
DDBJ has provided the XML formatted data (DDBJ-XML*) at its anonymous FTP site and its sequence retrieval getentry system since 2001. Additionally, since April 29 of this year, INSD-XML formatted data have been also provided by DDBJ, although as a trial**. INSD-XML is one of the DTD (Data Type Definition), which is commonly used by the International Nucleotide Sequence Databases (INSD) being comprised by DDBJ, EMBL, and GenBank, for their data releases.

* DDBJ-XML was designed aiming for the generation of documents making easier computer program manipulation and being also readable by humans. It is based on the concept of "flat file format", which has been widely used so far. Meanwhile, INSD-XML was designed focusing on Features/qualifiers structure rather than having familiarity with the Flat File format.

** Although INSD-XML was released to the public, the INSD Collaborative (INSDC) databases will confirm that there are no problems regarding the data exchange for all entries, and also will ensure that it is possible to write/read XML documents in a common format within one year. Therefore, in some cases, DTD itself might be changed and/or some changes might be done at the stage of the development from DTD to XML document. Anonymous FTP directories and file names released at DDBJ web pages are as shown below. At the present stage, available data from the anonymous FTP site is only daily updated for new data. Periodical release data will appear on next DDBJ release 62 (June, 2005).

Use of INSD-XML at FTP

URL : ftp.ddbj.nig.ac.jp/database/ddbjnew/xml/insd/

File name : DDBJNEWr##.XXX.insd_xml.gz (e.g. DDBJNEWr61.062.insd_xml.gz)

(## release number, XXX serial number)

  Release number and serial number are the same as daily updated anonymous FTP data.

  TPA and CON data are also released in one file.

  DTD for INSD-XML is INSD_INSDSeq.dtd, which is located in the same directory

USE of INSD-XML at getentry

If you select "INSD-XML" from DNA databases box, you will obtain the data in INSD-XML format.

New release "Notobase"Brachyury-downstream gene database Mar. 29, 2005
Brachyury, T-box domain containing transcription factor, was evolutionary conserved among animals and play an important role in embryonic development. To characterize Brachyury-downstream genes, Brachyury-downstream gene database, "NotoBase" was constructed by Kyoto University, Molecular and Evolutionary Developmental Biology and National Institute of Genetics, Center for Information Biology and DNA Data Bank of Japan. This database contains the annotation information for approximately 500 Brachyury downstream genes isolated by subtraction method. It is able for us to access such information that corresponding EST/cDNA/Genome sequences, more than 3000 pictures of gene expression pattern and homology information with BLAST. It also supports various searching (homology searching for gene expression pattern and keyword searching for the result with the BLAST). In addition, sequences of the Brachyury-downstream genes can be available from "Download" site.

Release of a large amount of transcript sequences in new category MGA (Mass sequence for Genome Annotation) Jan. 24, 2005
The International Nucleotide Sequence Databases (INSD) discussed the issue of receiving and releasing huge amounts of transcript sequence, each of which is a 5' end short-length transcript approximately 20 bp in length. They are produced by the CAGE (Cap Analysis Genome Expression) method and thus called the CAGE sequences. INSD then agreed that the sequences be submitted and released as a new category, MGA (Mass sequence for Genome Annotation), because the sequences are of new type and not fit to any of the extant divisions or categories.

 

Definition of MGA

MGA is defined as those sequences which are produced in large quantity in view of genome annotation.

 

The first set of MGA was released on January 24, 2005. The MGA data for mouse were submitted from Dr. Yoshihide Hayashizaki and his colleagues of the Genome Sciences Center at RIKEN. The total number of sequence entries this time is 383,264. The MGA data can be downloaded at the ftp site,

 

URL:ftp://ftp.ddbj.nig.ac.jp/ddbj_database/mga/project_index.html

 

You can jump to the above ftp site from "Anonymous FTP of the DDBJ" page of DDBJ HP.

Most of the present MGA sequences are associated with the gene expression data which have already been released at CIBEX (http://cibex.nig.ac.jp/index.jsp), one of the international gene expression databases, operated at the Center for Information Biology and DNA Data Bank of Japan.
