It is not an impression. You are perfectly right.
Our subscription to EMBL costs £30 per CD-ROM thus £120 per year thus, as you 
say, <$250.
The flat files can then be converted to the GCG format (through EMBLTOGCG) 
without _any_ problem. Same thing, of course, for Genbank.
This is why we do not subscribe to the GCG databanks option....
