ready European Nucleotide Archive


General Information
The European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) is a nucleotide database which is part of an international nucleotide sequence database collaboration. This collaboration comprises ENA itself, the DNA DataBank of Japan (DDBJ), and NCBI GenBank. This resource was formerly called the EMBL nucleotide sequence database. ENA provides a comprehensive record of the world's nucleotide sequencing information, covering raw sequencing data, sequence assembly information and functional annotation.
