EST and GSS databases now retired


In July 2018, NCBI announced plans to retire the EST and GSS databases, and we have now implemented these changes. We will continue to accept submissions of EST and GSS sequences, but will no longer provide special processes for these sequence types. If you want to submit EST and GSS data, please use tbl2asn. For further details, please visit https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank/dbest/ or https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank/dbgss/ or contact gb-admin@ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.

We thank all past and present submitters of EST and GSS data for the invaluable benefit these data have provided to numerous genomic sequencing projects over the years. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about these changes!
