Announcing a new gopher server:

The Chlamydomonas Genetics Center is an NSF-sponsored project that 
serves as a central repository to receive, catalogue, preserve and 
distribute stocks of nuclear and chloroplast mutants of the green alga 
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and other Chlamydomonas species in which 
extensive genetic analysis has been done.  The Center also maintains and 
distributes genomic and cDNA clones of Chlamydomonas nuclear, 
chloroplast and mitochondrial genes, and maintains an extensive database 
of information on Chlamydomonas and related algae.

Selected files from this database are now accessible by gopher.

This server can be accessed through the Duke University
Computer ASSIST Center Gopher.

For a direct link, here is the pointer information:

Name=Duke University Computer ASSIST Center

If you are not running a gopher server, you can connect by pointing your
gopher client to, port 70.  If you do not have access to a 
gopher client, gopher client and server software is available via anonymous

ftp from in the directory /pub/gopher.  You can 
telnet to a gopher client on by logging in as "gopher" with

the password "gopher".

The following files are included:
	A description of the Chlamydomonas Genetics Center
	Catalogue of Chlamydomonas strains available from the Center
	List of plasmids available from the Genetics Center
	List of genes that have been sequenced from Chlamydomonas species
	Recent literature citations
	Addresses of colleagues
	Nuclear genetic maps, in postscript and Macintosh bin-hex formats
	Chloroplast and mitochondrial genetic/physical maps, same formats
