An identifier supplied by the curators of the major biological databases upon submission of a novel entry that uniquely identifies that sequence or other entry.
A control number, unique to an object, whose purpose is identification, not description (Nauert 1979).
The unique identifying number assigned to a work when it is accessioned or added to the museum collection. The parts of the number describe when the work was acquired and whether it was acquired individually or as part of a larger group. For example, a work with the accession number 2004.1 was acquired in the year 2004, as the first acquisition of the year and is a single work, whereas 2004.2.3 was acquired in 2004 as part of the second acquisition of the year and was one of at least three works acquired from the same source.
Identifying number for a document used in many DATABASES. Can be used to find the same citation in the DATABASE again, but is otherwise not useful to the user. The one major exception to this is that in ERIC (an INDEX of educational sources), the accession number for Resources in Education ( RIE) documents (these begin with "ED") is used to locate non-book documents in the ERIC MICROFICHE cabinets. For example, the report entitled Learning Science is found under its accession number, ED406128.
Before automation, a unique identification number assigned to each volume when it was added to the library collection; barcode now serves this function.
A number assigned to an object or group of objects to fix its place chronologically in a collection and to distinguish the items of that object from those outside.
This refers to the unique GenBank identifier a sequence has been assigned. This number can be used to search dictyBase for a specific sequence.
A number or code allocated to an accession on arrival in the repository, to identify it for control purposes.
a combination of letters and numbers that are usually in the format of one letter followed by five digits (e
a unique identifier given to a sequence when it is submitted to one of the DNA repositories (GenBank, EMBL, DDBJ)
a unique number or combination of letters and numbers that are assigned to each record in a database.
A number assigned to a database record when the record in entered into the database. This number uniquely identifies the record within the database. SiteSearch uses accession numbers as unique identifiers to locate and replace/delete records in a database.
The unique number assigned to an accession.
a number or letter combination assigned by each museum or institute to the specimens it collects. Also called a catalog number.
The unique identifier assigned to each record in a database. It is usually a combination of numbers or numbers and letters.
A number assigned to each book or item as it is received by the library.
The serial number assigned to a book in accessioning.
a number assigned to an item when it is added to a database, such as a periodical index or library catalog. It indicates only the chronological order in which materials were added to the database.
A unique number assigned to each item as it is received in the library. It is taken from the line on which the item is recorded in the accession book (see the sample page of an accession book available online). The accession number is also marked on the item and the shelf list card. The accession number serves to uniquely identify each item in the library. In an automated system, a barcode number is used in place of an accession number.
A number assigned to each book as it is received in the library, for example 748.
A unique number or code given to mark the entry of a sequence (protein or nucleic acid) or pattern (regular expression, fingerprint, profile) to a primary or secondary database. Accession numbers should remain static between database updates, and hence in theory provide a mechanism for reliably identifying a particular entry in subsequent database releases.
a unique number assigned to a record in a particular resource.
The AN field (Accession Number) contains a unique number assigned by INIS to each record. The two digits before the hyphen show the volume of the printed INIS Atomindex into which the record was entered.
in an index, the accession or abstract number is a unique number given to that particular citation in that particular database. You may be asked for this number if you want to interlibrary loan an article.
A unique ID or job number that is generated by the hospital RIS and used for tracking each exam and its corresponding patient name, date, and exam type.
1) a number or code that identifies an archived library resource; 2) an inventory number assigned to each item in a library's collection. Usually sequentially assigned as the item is added. Typically in the form yyyy-nnnnn, in which the year of acquisition precedes the sequential number.
A unique, identifying number consisting of a letter followed by five digits (for example M13786) that is assigned to each entry in a database. Using accession numbers is the best method for specifying database entries in the Wisconsin Package. When a sequence is first entered into EMBL, GenBank, or SWISS-PROT, it is assigned a unique primary accession number. If that sequence is ever merged with another sequence, the accession number of the original sequence becomes a secondary accession number in the merged sequence. For more information, see the release notes for the individual databases or see "Specifying Database Sequences by Accession Number" in the "Using Database Sequences" section of Chapter 2, Using Sequences.
A unique number generated by the EDGAR system for each electronic submission. Accession numbers are reported to submitters and filers in the acceptance and suspense messages. Assignment of an accession number does not mean that EDGAR has accepted your submission.
The number which is assigned to each individual item during accessioning.
A unique number assigned sequentially to an accession for purposes of identification and control within the University Archives or University Records Center, e.g., 90:015.
a number assigned by the FRC to identify shipments of records to the FRC.
The number assigned to a work of art when it enters a collection. At the Saint Louis Art Museum, the four digits after the colon indicate the year the work was acquired. The digits before the colon indicate the sequence of acquisition during that year. For example, the accession number 25:2002 is given to the 25th work to enter the collection in 2002.
An identification number that used to be assigned (for cataloging purposes) to volumes of studies submitted to the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP). This has been replaced by the Master Record Identification (MRID) system, which identifies each individual study. See also, Master Record Identification System.
An accession number in bioinformatics is a unique identifier given to a DNA or protein sequence record to allow for tracking of different versions of that sequence record and the associated sequence over time in a single data repository. Because of its relative stability, accession numbers can be utilized as foreign keys for referring to a sequence object, but not necessarily to a unique sequence. All sequence information repositories implement the concept of "accession number" but might do so with subtle variations.
The term accession number is used to describe the sequential number given to each new book, magazine subscription, or recording as it is entered in the catalog of a library. If an item is removed from the collection, its number is usually not reused for new items. This numbering system is usually in addition to the library classification number (or alphanumeric code) and to the ISBN or International Standard Book Number assigned by publishers.
