The EMBL Data Library (1) was founded in 1980 as a direct consequence of the amount of sequence data appearing in the journals. Over the past 11 years, the growth in data acquisition has been exponential. With the latest developments in genome projects, we foresee no let up in the amount of data they will receive in the next few years. We do envisage, however, that a larger proportion will not be accompanied by detailed biological knowledge.
