Yes this is correct. As a matter of fact there are several ways of
doing this but the one used at most EMBnet sites is the so called:
NDT. NDT runs quitely in the background, updating the database
(in this case EMBL) while you sleep. 

Presently NDT compiles undere various flavours of U**X and VMS.

NDT was developed by Peter Gad of the Swedish EMBnet node who 
should be contacted for details:
