With the ‘genomic revolution’, organisms, genetic material or genes can be sequenced relatively cheaply, and data can be exchanged rapidly between researchers, institutions, countries and databases. The amount of so-called “Digital Sequence Information” (DSI) in international, public or dedicated databases is exponentially increasing, as is the use of that type of data.
