Accession Number

Bioinformatics A unique alphanumeric character set which is assigned to each entry in a database to unambiguously identify that particular record. An accession number is given to a nucleic acid sequence when submitted to a DNA repository—e.g., GenBank, EMBL, DDBJ, SWISS-PROT.
Examples MGI accession IDs, GenBank accession IDs, MedLine accession IDs 
Lab medicine A unique alphanumeric character set which is assigned to each specimen processed in a laboratory and which is generally of lesser importance than the patient information, except in the case of timed specimens.

In the primary PCR reaction, the primers used were the Kit specific forward primer WP-1 (that will anneal with the adaptor sequence); and the HSPA6 reverse primer; SP1, (5' CTAGGATCTCTACCCGGCCGTGCTG 3') that corresponds to nucleotide coordinates 206-230 in the HSPA6 gene (Accession number HQ214118).
Use of a laboratory information system (LIS) to generate unique accession numbers is general practice within the pathology laboratory, and the panel acknowledges that whenever possible all specimens should be assigned an accession number prior to evaluation; however, not all laboratories have an LIS portal accessible at the site of the intraprocedural consultation.
In addition to this, the data can be accessed through the DENVirDB accession number. It also has sequence retrival option to view only the sequences in FASTA format.
PGPR2 strain encoded a LysR family transcriptional regulator (909 bp; Genbank accession number ASQO01000026.1, regions 2019 : 1111), which showed maximum homology with a LysR family regulator from Achromobacter xylosoxidans (68% identity) in BlastP analysis.

Throughout the Visible Storage/Study Center, select objects will be highlighted with in-depth information on wall labels, but most works will be identified only by the museum identifying accession number. This number will be the key to locating information about the object in an online catalog by using one of the several computers in the facility.
