You can download all the Arabidopsis sequences and other information
from our FTP site:

This includes the full sequence set in the At_Genbank directory.  The
non-redundant protein set is in At_Protein directory.  Information
about the EST available from ABRC can be found in the ABRC directory.
Also check the AGI directory.  For all these directories please read
the README file.

We use GCG and other tools for sequences, a variety of local tools to
create the Web graphics, a couple HTML indexing tools, the new map
displays are generated from data contained within an Oracle database.
We do not provide access via SRS.

However, in the near future we will be making more information
available via our ftp site.
