The INRIA Genome Team (Paris/France) is pleased to annouce the first
release of their pyramidal clustering method software.


PYRAMIDS is a new tool to cluster biological objects, it uses the
pyramidal classification method developed by Diday E. & al.. 

This methods is an extension of the well known hierarchical method,
with some new features :

- A sequence can belong simultanously to 2 families.
- Objects classified follow a set of compatible order with the
  pyramidal structure.

these properties allow more accurate analysis of clusters, and leads
to domain prediction among sets of sequences.

A complete description of this method will be avalaible soon in this
article :

"Application of the pyramidal clustering method to biological objects"
Aude jc, Diaz-Lazcoz y, Codani jj and Risler jl  [UNDER SUBMISSION]

Some materials are avalaible on our web site (including a concrete
example of the usage of pyramidal analysis) here :

This software is only avalaible for UN*X systems, and can be
downloaded from the same address.
