GIB(Genome Information Broker) started the delivery of update information by RSS. You will be notified whenever new genomes are added or existing genomes are updated, if you register the GIB RSS site by use of an RSS reader.

What is RSS?
RSS is a shortened name of Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication, and a number of web site has used to push the information on headline, outline, update date, the link to the web site and so on to the user.

In the case of GIB RSS, the list of new genomes and updated genomes is delivered to you. You click the genome of you interest in the list and you are directly guided to the web page of the genome that you choose.
