Help on Help on EMBL format

The format is based on the format used in the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence Library. However, it does differ from it in several respects:
  • The sequences contain gap symbols.
  • The sequences in one entry are not neccesarily obtained from one continuous stretch of DNA. When an rRNA sequence consists of several exons or fragments, these are appended to each other in the sequence served. The feature table will show where the different parts start and end. Each part has its own reference: number 1 for the first part, etc.
