For those (few??) of you who would not have seen this on some
of the other bionet newsgroups!

    GenBank Now Offers BankIt -- WWW Submission Tool for GenBank Sequences


   GenBank users may now use the World Wide Web (WWW) for submitting sequences
to GenBank.  The new submission tool - BankIt - provides a simple forms
approach for submitting your sequence and descriptive information to
GenBank.  BankIt has been developed by GenBank in conjunction with its
international collaborating databases (EMBL and DDBJ) and it is anticipated
that EMBL and DDBJ will be offering similar services in the near future.
Your submission will be submitted directly to GenBank and immediately
forwarded for inclusion in the EMBL and DDBJ databases.

   BankIt allows you to enter sequence information into a form, revise as
necessary, and add biological annotation (e.g., coding regions, mRNA features).
BankIt transforms your data into GenBank format for your review and when your
record is completed, it can be submitted directly to GenBank.  You have
the option of adding information by using text boxes to describe in your
own words the source of the sequence and its biological features.  The
GenBank annotation staff reviews the submitted textual information,
incorporates it into the appropriate structured fields, and returns the
record by e-mail for your review.
   GenBank will promptly contact you by e-mail with an accession number. Once
the testing phase is completed, BankIt will automatically issue accession

   BankIt has been tested with Netscape clients for Unix, Macs, and PCs.
In addition, the Mosaic client for Unix, and the MacWeb client for Macs,
have successfully been used.

   You can access BankIt through the GenBank home page:


   If you have any questions on using BankIt, please contact the GenBank
support staff at 'info at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov' or at (301) 496-2475.
