Preparing for a deluge of data

The U.S. National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) is established in Bethesda, Maryland at the National Institutes of Health and the National Medical Library. It now houses Genbank, a nucleotide sequence database that originated at Los Alamos National Laboratories, and participates in the International Nucleotide Sequence Database Collaboration with the European Bioinformatics Institute at Hinxton, U.K., which maintains EMBL-Bank, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory Nucleotide Sequence Database, and the DNA Data Bank of Japan (DDBJ) at Mishima.
