Some databanks are available in the /db directory.

They are automatically updated and indexed on a regular basis using BioMAJ. Some banks are available in multiple versions. The current symbolic link targets the latest version available on our servers.

You can consult the list of available banks on our BioMAJ instance.

When working on /db, do not use in your scripts the /db/..../current path, always look at targeted directory to use its real path as bank may be updated during your job. You can get real path with:

readlink -f /db/genbankRelease/current/

If you need a databank that is not available in /db, just send an email to, and we will help you.
