Dear Collegues,

For those of you who don't already know, we have released the latest
version of the database of representative repetitive sequence families,
formerly known as "reference collection(s)", deposited in Repbase.
These collections are now published in the form of an Electronic Journal,
entitled "Repbase Update", to allow more rapid update and organization
of explosively growing information on repetitive DNA into a coherent, 
carefully edited resource used in genomic sequence studies.  
Repbase Update will be continuously updated on-line as new peer-reviewed
information is contributed by individual researchers.  For submission
and downloading details please visit us at: http://www.girinst.org.
