(Summary) DDBJ newly collected and released nucleotide sequence data containing honeybee expressed sequence tags (ESTs), re-examined and re-annotated complete genome data of Escherichia coli K-12 W3110, medaka WGS and human MGA, in the period from July 2005 to June 2006. DDBJ also systematically evaluated and classified the genes in the complete bacterial genomes submitted to INSDC. (PMID: 17108353)
