GSS Database from NLM

The GSS database contains all records found within the Genome Survey Sequence (GSS) division of GenBank. GSS records contain first-pass single-read genomic sequences and rarely include annotated biological features. These are the genomic equivalent of EST records; short single pass reads from gDNA libraries. Insert end and other reads from BAC and other large insert genomic libraries used to identify and assemble candidates for genome sequencing are common examples of GSS records.
