Nucleotide Databases - Exercise 2
GenBank, EMBL and DDBJ are the most frequently used databases for nucleotide and protein sequences.
  1. Use the accession number from Exercise 1 and retrieve the EMBL entry for the same sequence.
  2. EMBL uses SRS to query its databases. SRS is the Sequence Retrieval System which was originally developed by Thure Etzold at the EBI. Click on Text Entry on the top of the page to see the original EMBL entry in text format. What is the basic structure of an EMBL entry?
  3. Is the information different from what you have seen at the NCBI?
