The NRSub server has been developed through an international collaboration between four different laboratories in three different countries: the Center for Information Biology at the National Institute of Genetics (Japan), the Laboratory of Biometry, Genetics and Population Biology, at the University Lyon 1 (France), the Department of Genetic Expression Regulation at Pasteur Institute (France), and the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics in Geneva (Switzerland).
Under NRSub, it is now possible to access the complete genome of Bacillus subtilis. NRSub is cross-referenced with SWISS-PROT, ENZYME, and HOBACGEN databases. NRSub is accessible through this WWW server, but it is also distributed through two anonymous FTP set up in France and in Japan. The system is distributed either in flat file format or structured as an ACNUC database. The flat file is also mirrored at Infobiogen and at EBI.
This server has been developed by Guy Perrière, who is also in charge of providing an ASCII and an ACNUC dump of the data set. Sequence contigs are provided by Ivan Moszer. These contigs are primarily available under his nice SubtiList database. Everything related to the protein data is supervised by the worldwide recognized pope of the protein databases: Amos Bairoch. And, last but not least, the man without whom the structuration of these data would have been very difficult: Manolo Gouy, the father of the ACNUC system.
