     It  is  now  possible  to  query  a  merging  of the two protein
     collections  SWISS-PROT  and  TREMBL  with the sequence database
     management system ACNUC. All the files required for a local set-
     up can be downloaded at URL:

              ftp://biom3.univ-lyon1.fr/pub/acnuc/swissprot

     Indexation  with  ACNUC  makes  possible the building of queries
     using many criteria to retrieve sequences. Criteria are based on
     mnemonics,   accession   numbers,   keywords,   taxonomic  data,
     bibliographic  references,  dates of insertion in the bank, etc.

     It  is  possible to distinguish SWISS-PROT sequences from TREMBL
     sequences using the `STATUS' criteria. Indeed SWISS-PROT entries
     have  a `STANDARD' status, while TREMBL entries have a `PRELIMI-
     NARY' status.

     Interrogation  of SWISS-PROT/TREMBL is also possible through the
     WWW-Query World Wide Web server. The home page of this server is
     located at URL:

                         http://acnuc.univ-lyon1.fr/

     All  enquiries about ACNUC and the retrieval system Query should
     be  sent  to  Manolo Gouy (mgouy at biomserv.univ-lyon1.fr) and all
     questions  about  WWW-Query  should  be  sent  to  Guy  Perriere
     (perriere at biomserv.univ-lyon1.fr).
