Number of nucleotide sequence: 168,562 entries (93,982,299 base-pair)
Number of amino acid sequence: 113,555 entries (16,499,605 amino-acid)
Besides the data of KIPO, International Nucleotide Sequence Database (INSD) (collaboration of DDBJ, EMBL and GenBank) distribute other patent data that was accepted by Japan Patent Office (JPO), European Patent Office (EPO) and United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
For details, please refer to “Nucleotide Sequences Included Patent Applications” section of Patent, Intellectual Property and Priority page.
So, the prefixes for patent related data are;
JPO: E, BD, DD, DJ
