INSDC - International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration

Program Description: The International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration is comprised of 3 synchronized genomic data stores: GenBank (US), DDBJ (Japan) and ENA (Europe) . Together, they provide comprehensive public domain nucleotide sequence information. Their model is that data entered at any one site is shared with the other two. Some computational services are offered by the genomics institutes (eg BLAST) and/or programmable interfaces are available, but most user-written code uses a locally stored copy of the database. see GenBank see DDBJ see ENA

Organization Description: N/A

Data Description: The three replicated data stores are the repository and archives for the world’s knowledge regarding genes, sequences, proteins, and so forth. This material is constantly being updated and referenced by scientists around the world.
