I can't speak for any of the other sites but until recent I did NOT
check Mac or DOS software for viruses. I didn't have the time or disk
space. With the NSF funding this will change, plus I finally have a
Mac courtesy of my department. Once a disk is bought I will be able
to unpack and check all of the software on the Gene-Server. If viruses
are found I will immediately post a notice to this newsgroup.
