NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Members of the advisory committee to the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration (INSDC) published a letter this week reminding the research committee of the importance of depositing complete DNA sequence data in its databases upon their publication.

The INSDC — an initiative of the DNA Data Bank of Japan, the European Nucleotide Archive, and the National Center for Biotechnology Information — was established to promote the collection and dissemination of DNA and RNA sequence databases.
