			The European Nucleotide Archive (ENA;
			http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena) is a repository
			for the submission, maintenance and presentation
			of nucleotide sequence data and related
			sample and experimental information. In
			this article we report on ENA in 2015 regarding
			general activity, notable published data
			sets and major achievements. This is followed
			by a focus on sustainable biocuration of
			functional annotation, an area which has
			particularly felt the pressure of sequencing
			growth. The importance of functional annotation,
			how it can be submitted and the shifting
			role of the biocurator in the context of
			increasing volumes of data are all discussed.
