A variety of new software has been added to the Gene-Server.
Notably, unix-compatible "compress" programs are now available for the
Mac and DOS.

A VMS program for filling out the GenBank/PIR/EMBL/DDBJ submission
form is available for ftp ONLY as a compressed VMS backup save set.
Anonymous FTP to,, in

A new Unix-compatible decompress is also available in that directory
as a VMS executable (you can tell what kind of requests I've had over
the last week, can't you?). Use BINARY FTP mode.

As usual, GenBank has been updated. PIR will be updated when some bugs
are worked out of the system and some disk space becomes available.

New software:

I'm off for a few weeks of teaching in a cooler climate, so expect
softwar updates and response to mail to be a little slower.

The Gene-Server is just about out of disk space in both the FTP areas
and the e-mail, so unless something changes in the next month or two I
will have to start deleting files from the FTP area.  The IUBIO
archives of Don Gilbert ( should be considered
authoritative anyway; the area is a convenience and
meant as a temporary holding area until the other sites get the files.
