An update to the  eleventh release of data from the Human Physical Mapping
Project at the Whitehead Institute/MIT Genome Center, covering data
generated through the end of April, 1997, is now available.

This data release contains radiation hybrid screening data for 14,308 
sequence tagged sites (STSs) screened on the Genebridge4 Panel.  This 
represents an additional 1,700 mapped ESTs since the October, 1996 
release.  Our current integrated map contains 11722 ESTs and 24230 
total markers. 

The data is available electronically in two ways.

ANONYMOUS FTP: The entire data release is available as a set of
Microsoft Excel files and tab-delimited ascii files on our ftp
server.  Using an ftp client (such as "Fetch" on the Macintosh),
connect to

The contents are as follows:

  10-96.INTRO.html       Introduction to the data release
  10-96.STS.DATA.txt     STS mapping data as tab-delimited text.
  10-96.ALIASES.txt      Cross reference of STS names.
  rhmap/                 Radiation hybrid maps.

The data is also available in compressed form using the gzip program.
