General Information
The International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC) is a long-standing foundational initiative that operates between DDBJ, EMBL-EBI and NCBI. INSDC covers the spectrum of data raw reads, though alignments and assemblies to functional annotation, enriched with contextual information relating to samples and experimental configurations.

Implementing Databases (3)
GenBank is the NIH genetic sequence database, an annotated collection of all publicly available DNA sequences. GenBank is part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration, which comprises the DNA DataBank of Japan (DDBJ), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), and GenBank at NCBI. These three organizations exchange data on a daily basis. 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.

The DNA Data Bank of Japan
Annotated collection of all publicly available nucleotide and protein sequences. In Japan, DDBJ Center internationally contributes as a member of INSDC to collect and to provide nucleotide sequence data with ENA/EBI in Europe and NCBI in USA. DDBJ collects sequence data mainly from Japanese researchers, as well as researchers in any other countries. Ninety-nine percent of INSD data from Japanese researchers are submitted through DDBJ.

European Nucleotide Archive
The European Nucleotide Archive (ENA) is a globally comprehensive data resource for nucleotide sequence, spanning raw data, alignments and assemblies, functional and taxonomic annotation and rich contextual data relating to sequenced samples and experimental design. Serving both as the database of record for the output of the world's sequencing activity and as a platform for the management, sharing and publication of sequence data, the ENA provides a portfolio of services for submission, data management, search and retrieval across web and programmatic interfaces. The ENA is part of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration.
