The following list of known issues have been reported to WIPO for versions of WIPO Sequence beginning at version 2.1.0.  Version 1.x.x generates sequences according to outdated versions of the Standard and should not be used.  Version 2.0.0 was superseded by version 2.1.0 before WIPO ST.26 entered general use and is not supported, but is known to contain some of the bugs described below. The latest version is version 2.3.0 and this is the version we recommend that everyone uses. 

The following list of known issues have been reported to WIPO. Please only report to WIPO at any issues which are not provided below.

ST26T-2876No warning message when DNA/RNA sequence includes "n" symbols - should indicate that the default value should be assumedWIPO Sequence2.

When updating manually created nucleotide sequence containing a single "n" symbol - feature location for source feature can be wrong

Workaround: Uncheck "Intentionally skipped" checkbox and add the organism. The location of source feature will become correct.

In a project, the PDF resulting form clicking the Print button contains a wrong priority date and filing date (it reduces the day by 1).

ST26T-2905Non Latin characters not allowed in non English qualifier value. Error returned: "The non English free text must contain only Unicode characters, except the reserved or controlled charactersWIPO Sequence2.

After ST.25 import, an error is thrown indicating that the qualifier ID is not unique

Workaround: Delete the feature which includes a duplicate qualifier ID. Recreate the feature at the same location but do not add the qualifier before saving. Next, edit the feature to add the relevant qualifier and update the feature.
