Accessing online databases...

Thanks for your help! If I could ask another questions...I checked out the
admin¹s guide and I found the following information:

DB mydb [
# required parameters
method: url
format: genbank
url: "[genbank-id:%s]"
#optional parameters
type: N
comment: "Genbank by ID from InfoBiogen"

I have also found and pasted this into my emboss.default.template. What do I
need to do to get this to show up in ³showdb²?

Any information or URL¹s to accessing an online database using a Genbank
accession number would be greatly appreciated!
