ready Access to Biological Collection Data DNA extension

Abbreviation: ABCDDNA

General Information
ABCDDNA is a theme specific extension for ABCD (Access to Biological Collections Data) created to facilitate storage and exchange of data related to DNA collection units, such as DNA extraction specifics, DNA quality parameters, and data characterising products of downstream applications, along with the relation to the analysed voucher specimen. ABCDDNA is an XML Schema extension to ABCD 2.06, which offers only a rudimentary set of DNA-specific data ("Sequences"). Although a stable standard, it will be replaced by the Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN) Data Standard specification, which currently has a draft status.

GenBank is the NIH genetic sequence database, an annotated collection of all publicly available DNA sequences. The complete release notes for the current version of GenBank are available on the NCBI ftp site. A new release is made every two months. GenBank growth statistics for both the traditional GenBank divisions and the WGS division are available from each release. GenBank is part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC), which comprises the DNA DataBank of Japan (DDBJ), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), and GenBank at the NCBI. These three organizations exchange data on a daily basis.
