                        BITMed ANNOUNCES THE FTP SITE
                           FOR CDM-DS VERSION 3.2

        As a followup to our general mailings of 2 and 1 week(s) ago, we are
happy to provide all who have expressed interest in the Cellular Device
Machine Development System (CDM-DS) and SLANG with direct access to the
Macintosh application via anonymous ftp at ''. The UNIX
versions for SUN and Silicon Graphics workstations will be put into this site
shortly.  All software posted at the ftp site is free, and you are invited
to upload your own SLANG applications.

        Also available at the ftp site are a readme file, and several papers
that address previous versions of the CDM-DS and a variety of applications,
in particular infectious diseases simulations using an artificial immune
system, and testing HIV molecular biology in in silico physiologies.

        To recap, the CDM-DS is a tool for modelling complex systems. It
is equipped with its own object-based Simulation LANGuage SLANG and advanced
methods for evaluating dynamics. Current applications include modelling of the
immune and neuroenocrine systems in mice, database mining, HIV disease
progression, and molecular biology.

        The CDM-DS and applications will be presented by Prof. Hans B.
Sieburg, director of BITMed, at:

        July 6          Nat. Institute of Allergies & Infectious
                        Diseases, Washington D.C.
