Subject: line blank) to

Questions to davison at or DAVISON at UHOU on BITNET.  Other networks
can be reached from the gene-server.  CAUTION: don't forget that BITNET
has a 300,000 byte file size limit.  If you send a search and get nothing
back, you probably had too much output.  Try a bigger search sequence or
ask for help from a local wizard or as a *last* resort, you can try
