mRNA sequence with no Uracils? - (Apr/05/2010 )

Hi all,

Quick question. When I view a Genbank or FASTA file on NCBI under Genomic regions, transcripts, and products I get the mRNA seq but there are no Uracils in the sequence. Am I looking at the mRNA with the Uracils replaced with Thymine or am I looking at genomic DNA.



mRNA sequences in NCBI databases are cDNA sequences.
