Announcing ConsInspector 3.0 for DOS
====================================

ConsInspector is a program to scan nucleic acid sequences for matches to a
precompiled library of transcription factor binding sites. The program
carries out an extensive examination of binding site candidates: the real
sequence is compared with randomly shuffled versions and sequence regions
surrounding the conserved binding site are included into the analysis.

ConsInspector 3.0 is now available for DOS in addition to UNIX and VAX/VMS.
Release 3.0 includes a considerably extended library of binding site
descriptions (consensus profiles). The library encompasses now 
37 consensus profiles of the following groups:
- prokaryotes (2 profiles)
- vertebrates (16 profiles)
- viruses (10 profiles)
- yeast (9 profiles)
Most consensus profiles of the original library have been improved by
inclusion of additional sequences.


ConsInspector 3.0 is available for DOS, UNIX and VAX/VMS at

	ftp://ariane.gsf.de/pub/dos/
        ftp://ariane.gsf.de/pub/unix/
        ftp://ariane.gsf.de/pub/vax/

                   or

        http://www.gsf.de/biodv/consinspector.html


The MAC-Version of ConsInspector 3.0 is not yet ready and will be announced
at a later date (probably in October 1996).
