[Editor's Note: This is a reprint of an announcement from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). To automatically receive the latest news and announcements regarding major changes and updates to NCBI resources and tools please see the subscribe page.

RefSeq Release 71 is now available online on the FTP site and through NCBI's programming utilities with 77,730,891 records describing 52,494,032 proteins, 11,803,354 RNAs, and sequences from 55,267 organisms. More information can be found in the Release Notes.

Please note that we plan to comprehensively re-annotate bacterial and archaeal genomes for RefSeq release 72 (September 2015). This re-annotation is being carried out to reflect improvements in a) management of partial, very short, and fragmented genes and proteins and b) protein name management. It will also result in increased consistency of some textual information applied to RefSeq records. To learn more about the re-annotation project and what NCBI is doing to help users in transitioning to using this new data, please see the RefSeq Re-annotation Project page.

More information about the RefSeq project, pipelines and data, please take a look at the RefSeq homepage.
