Dear Wael

there is a lot of ATCC info on gopher ... you have to loot at the
right place :-)

  Ah, you just didn't search the right part of gopher :-).  You can
  search all the articles that have ever been posted to bionet by
  wais or gopher.  Remembering that this question has come up before
  a search for a search for ATCC yields the following article posted
  by Bill Melchior last July.

  Best of luck,
