What's New in NRSub
Release 10.1 (December 1997)
- Complete genome is available.
- Total number of bases: 4,214,814.
- The only sequence is named BACSUCG, to follow the convention
used in the NRBact database.
- Integration of cross-references to gene families from HOBACGEN,
a database of homologous genes in bacteria, this under the
- Cross-references to Escherichia coli orthologous genes are no
longer integrated in the features.
- Computed map positions with an accuracy in tenth of degree are
given for all genes.
Release 9 (September 1996)
- Total number of bases: 1,983,150.
- Integration of data from SubtiList 12.
Release 8 (July 1996)
- Total number of bases: 1,910,443.
- Integration of data from SubtiList 11.
- Integration of cross-references to E.coli orthologous
protein genes, this with a
/note qualifier. Cross-references
are made with SWISS-PROT.
- A Macintosh version of the database and of its retrieval system is now
Release 7 (April 1996)
- Total number of bases: 1,616,172.
- Integration of data from SubtiList 10.
/xref qualifier replaced by
/db_xref which is
now the standard for EMBL/GenBank/DDBJ repository databases.
Release 6 (October 1995)
- Total number of bases: 1,483,324.
- Integration of data from SubtiList 8 and 9.
Release 5 (June 1995)
- Total number of bases: 1,380,098.
- Integration of data from SubtiList 7.
- Sequences are now named following their position on the chromosome.
DE field contains now not only the primary accession
number of the sequences used to build the contigs but also those of the
- Introduction of cross-references with bibliographic database
- Introduction of an
/alt_name qualifier for all the
alternative gene names.
/genetic_map to ensure
compatibility with SRS.
- All ORFs have their own name, based on the form yxzN.
- All non-168 sequences are removed from the distribution.
Release 4 (January 1995)
- Total number of bases: 1,251,557.
- Integration of data from SubtiList 6.
- Sequences are numbered following their position on the chromosome
of the 168 strain. Sequences with the highest numbers are not
mapped or have been sequenced in non-168 strains.
- All the sequences use now a name of the form BSCONTxxx. The
form BSORIGxxx is no longer used.
- To retrieve the composite contigs, it is now necessary to use
the keyword composite instead of contig.
- WWW access is provided.
Release 3 (December 1994)
- Total number of bases:1,248,008.
- Integration of data from SubtiList 5 and EMBL 39.
- Moving of the contig coordinates from
/merge qualifier to
- Adding of the coordinates on the genetic map for all the
genes in the
- Moving of the cross-references from
DR field to
- Systematic addition of all the cross-references to SWISS-PROT.
- Definition of accession numbers for all the genes (protein genes
and structural RNA genes).
- It is possible to retrieve non-168 sequences using the
keyword non-168 strain. Indication of the strain name is given in
Release 2 (October 1994)
- Total number of bases: 1,038,404.
- Integration of data from EMBL 38.
- Introduction of the contig coordinates in a
- Introduction of dedicated accession numbers on the form
- Non-composite sequences now designed by a name of the form
- Sequence names from the original EMBL database used to build the
contigs are replaced by their accession numbers.
- Introduction of the keyword hypothetical protein for accessing
directly all the ORFs.
- Systematic use of the gene names and products from SWISS-PROT
instead of EMBL/GenBank/DDBJ.
Release 1 (July 1994)
- First release of NRSub, for internal use only.
- Total number of bases: 1,005,179.
- Building of the original contigs starting from EMBL 37.
