OWL version 21.2 is now available for ftp from s-ind2.dl.ac.uk

New versions of this composite non-redundant protein sequence database
appear  every few weeks rather  than  quarterly. The source databases,
although arriving quarterly, do not appear at the same time!

The info file is appended.

    NRL_3D Contains entries for which an X-Ray crystal structure exists
    in Brookhaven. The codes for these entries start with N$ followed by
    the Brookhaven database code.

    Note:
    1. Starting with Swissprot Release 21 the dollar sign '$'
    in entry names has been replaced by the underscore character '_'
 
    2. Starting with OWL release 20.0, all PIR codes that are cross referenced
    to Swissprot codes are removed from the source PIR databases before
    OWL is built.
