Where discrepancies have arisen between reported sequences and those stored in the databases, the original authors have been contacted where possible, and necessary amendments to published sequences have been incorporated. Future sequencing may identify errors and the Nomenclature Committees would welcome any evidence that helps to maintain the accuracy of the database.
