As was already notified, DDBJ proceeded deletion of the both phone and fax numbers, and E-mail address from the flat files of the entries submitted to DDBJ. The retrofit of the all entries was completed by the issue of this release 72. Hereafter, database users become difficult to contact submitters based on the information described in the DDBJ flat files. When you wish to contact to the submitter(s) of an entry of your interest, please contact us using the prescribed inquiry form placed in the DDBJ HP.
