	o The BioSCAN e-mail server databases have been updated.  The 
	  currently available databases are as follows:

	  		GenBank 	Release-93
			SWISS-PROT 	Release-32
	  		PIR 		Release-47
	  		GenPept 	Release-93

        o BioSCAN (Biological Sequence Comparative Analysis Node) is a 
          computational tool designed for similarity analysis of biological
          sequences.  Its massively parallel computer system performs rapid,
          rigorous, searches of biosequence databases and is compatible with 
          popular software packages such as BLAST and FASTA. 

          To receive current set of instructions on using the BioSCAN 
          e-mail server, send an e-mail to the address "bioscan at cs.unc.edu".
          Put the word "HELP"or "help" on a line by itself in the body of the 
          message.  A tutorial ("tutor.txt") can be retrieved via anonymous
          FTP to "ftp.cs.unc.edu" from "/pub/projects/bioscan" directory.  
	  Please send your questions and comments to "bioscan-info at cs.unc.edu".
