It's been obvious from the start that the CEPH/Genethon people had a
good Internet scheme going -- access by all the favorite protocols.
(and to make things even better, the good folks at the U.Michigan
Genome Center have provided WWW search facilities.
<a href="http://guraldi.itn.med.umich.edu/cgi-bin/ceph-to-html">Human Genome Physical Map</a> from CEPH-<a href="http://www.genethon.fr/genethon_en.html">Genethon</a> (at <a href="http://mendel.hgp.med.umich.edu/Home.html">U.Michigan Genome Center</a>)
But what is the explanation for the Cohen quote in the Science article
about "only 1 person sending out requests on the Internet"? Was some
important context lost? Did Dr. Cohen mean that there was one person
available for non-internet requests or for showing non-netliterate
biologists how to get the data? The incongruence between that article
and the excellent (and well net-publicized) net access has had me wondering
Hope someone can shed some light on this curious statement.
