I am happy to announce that BIOSCI will also be distributing the Table
of Contents from the journal "Protein Science" on the BIO-JOURNALS
newsgroup.  This material PLUS a lot of other useful information and
software associated with the journal is also available from their new
FTP service at ftp.uci.edu [128.200.15.20], also known as
orion.oac.uci.edu.  After using the FTP protocol and logging in as
"anonymous" with your e-mail address as the password, cd to the
"protein" directory.  I include the README file from that directory to
illustrate the services offered.

				Sincerely,

				Dave Kristofferson
				BIOSCI/bionet Manager

This is the file README from the Protein Science anonymous FTP system.
It was prepared using Courier 10pt type, 1.25" L & R margins.

Your comments and suggestions will be appreciated.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS AND COMMAND SUMMARY:

The FTP system operates on a Unix-based computer so that any
typed commands are case sensitive.  ReadMe, README, etc. are not 
equivalent statements.

To get help (list of commands): Type "?" or "help"
To see a directory listing: Type "ls" or "dir"
To change directories: Type "cd [directory name]"
To move up one level in the directory tree: Type "cd .."
To transfer files to your computer: Type "get [filename]"
To quit your FTP session: Type "quit" or "bye"
To set FTP for text (ascii) transfers: Type "ascii" [default]
To set FTP for binary transfers: Type "binary"
To receive detailed information as files are transferred: Type "verbose"

************************************************************************
Note about text files.  Most of the plain text files (ascii) are pre-
pared initially for viewing by TeachText on Macintosh computers.  Teach-
Text uses proportional spacing fonts whereas most simple MS-DOS text
editors use fixed spacing font, typically Courier.  As a result, many of
the ascii files associated with the diskette appendices may not have a
"neat" appearance when viewed on MS-DOS machines.  We recommend, there-
fore, that the files be viewed with a word processor program so that you
can choose fonts that will give the best appearance.

D: PSvolumes/

	This directory contains subdirectories for each issue of Protein
	Science in the form vXnY where X is the volume number and Y is the
	issue number.  Within each vXnY directory will be found the
	complete Diskette Appendix for that issue except for the MAGE
	and PREKIN programs.  The latest versions of those should be
	downloaded from /Kinemage/pcMAGE or /Kinemage/macMAGE.  Each vXnY 
	directory is organized into subdirectories exactly as the Diskette 
	Appendices are.  See the file Diskette.txt in the root directory.
	NOTICE.  Preparing and transferring the diskette appendix files to
	this anonymous FTP system requires a considerable amount of time.
	The preparation and transfer of all of the Diskette Appendix
	materials for volume 1 is ongoing and not yet complete except for
	past kinemages.

D: PS_sea/

	This directory contains compressed archive versions of
	the Protein Science Diskette Appendices for Macintosh computers.
	The files have been compressed using StuffIt software.  The file 
	name convention is ProSciX_Y.sea.  THESE ARE BINARY FILES. Set the
	FTP server to "binary" before transferring.  The files are self-
	expanding; double-click the StuffIt icon.  When transferring files
	to your Mac, select Macbinary so that resource fork information
	will be transferred properly.  Prepared using StuffIt Lite v. 3.0.
	NOTE:  The MAGE and PREKIN software have been removed.  Obtain the
