Subject: UH Gene-Server updated: PIR 26, GB 65; will be updated regularly now
The UH Gene-Server (gene-server at bchs.uh.edu) and the associated
anonymous FTP archives (menudo.uh.edu, 184.108.40.206) have been updated
with the latest release of the protein database PIR Rel. 26 and
GenBank release 65. GB Rel. 66, which should be available shortly,
will be added as soon as it becomes available. The GenBank entries
will be updated weekly, on weekends.
In addition, the PIR Re. 26 files have been grouped and placed for
anonymous FTP retrieval in ~ftp/pub/genbank-server/pir as pir1.tar.Z,
pir2.tar.Z, and pir3.tar.Z, corresponding to the three divisons of the
PIR and their associated index files. The files are compressed, so
be sure to use 'type binary' before FTP'ing them. The documentation
files are available as pir-doc.tar.Z.
Additional software has been added to the Mac and PC archives.
GenBank Release 63, the last with the old feature table still used by
many many programs, is still available on menudo for anonymous FTP.
