I am posting this message from Guy Perriere
since I think it is of general interest:
NRSub Release 5 (June 1995)
The release 5 of NRSub (the Non-Redundant Bacillus subtilis data
base) is now available at the NIG anonymous FTP (ftp.nig.ac.jp
or 22.214.171.124) in the directory /pub/db/nrsub. It is also
possible to access NRSub through World Wide Web at URLs:
The distribution includes:
- The NRSub database under ACNUC and the sources of the query
program for line mode use (file NRSub.tar.Z).
- The flat version of NRSub in EMBL format (file NRSub.dat or
- The binaries of the graphical interface for browsing an ACNUC
database (files query_win.*.Z). Query_win.SUN file is for Sun
under SunOS, query_win.SOL is for Sun under Solaris,
query_win.RS6000 is for IBM RISC, query_win.ALPHA is for DEC
Alpha, and query_win.SGI is for Silicon Graphics.
NRSub release 5 contains a total of 237 contigs (62 composite)
built from the SubtiList database release 7. All these sequences
are chromosomal (plasmidic sequences are removed) and totalize
1,380,098 bp. This represents approximatively 33% of the entire
Bacillus subtilis chromosome consisting of about 4,165 kbp.
These sequences contain 1197 CDS (444 ORFs), 72 tRNAs and 27
rRNAs. Also, 453 bibliographic references can be accessed.
Note for SRS developers: there is a slight modification in the
DE field of the entries. Indeed, EMBL sequences are now
referenced with the accession number AND the mnemonic. So, take
care when implementing cross-references between NRSub and EMBL.
