1) GenBank(tm) sequences
	Start by getting the HELP file from the server
		SEND HELP

		SEND INDEX index-file-name
        Entries are retrieved by
		SEND LOCUS locus-name locus-name2 locus-name3...
	and by
		SEND ACCESSION accession-1 accession-2 accession3...

2) PIR (Protein Information Resource) protein sequences
	Start by getting the help file which includes the top-level index
		SEND PIR-HELP
	and then a specific index file:
		SEND PIR-INDEX protein.dat-c
	Individual entries are retrieved with
		SEND PIR-ENTRY sequence-name sequence-name2 sequence-name3...
        Release notes can be obtained with
		SEND PIR-RELEASE

3) Search the protein database via e-mail:
	A help file is available from 
		SEND PIR-SEARCH HELP
        And searches can be performed by sending a properly 
        formatted sequence to

		pir-search%bchs.uh.edu (BITNET/NETNORTH/EARN....)
        Users on IBM mainframe or mainframe clone systems see the 
        note below.

4) Molecular biology software
	Start by getting an overview:
		HELP SOFTWARE
	Specific indices can be retrieved with one or more of:
		SEND MAC INDEX
		SEND DOS INDEX
		SEND VMS INDEX
		SEND UNIX INDEX
	Specific software can be retrieved with:
		SEND MAC name1 name2 name3 name4...
		SEND DOS name1 name2 name3 name4...
		SEND VMS name1 name2 name3 name4...


5) Matrix of Biological Knowledge Project information

		SEND MATRIX INDEX

6) Molecular-evolution bboard archives:
	Start with
		SEND MOLEVOL HELP
	and
		SEND MOLEVOL INDEX

		SEND RENZDATA
		SEND RENZREFS

8) The software and PIR database is available via anonymous
FTP to lavaca.uh.edu [129.7.1.19], in the directory genbank-server.



We will try, but may very well not be able to respond to every 
request for help; this is a completely volunteer effort.


Questions about the server should be directed to:
	genbank-server-management at bchs.uh.edu (NFSNet)
or
	genbank-server-management%bchs.uh.edu at CUNYVM (BITNET, etc.)
By popular demand, "genbank-server-managment" also works.
