We're currently developing a client-server version of selected applications
from the GCG package. Applications such as fasta, tfasta and fetch will be
converted. A GCG licence may be required to operate the system.
The MoBiCS (Molecular Biology Client Server) system requires that you have
access to the internet. Currently supported operating systems are OSF/1 and
VAX/VMS. It is written in C++ and requires the DEC CXX compiler. PC clients
are planned for the future.
MoBiCS provides the user with a transparent mechanism to access the remote
databases. The interface to the MoBiCS client is identical to the requested
searching application, ie. if the user is currently using fasta then a move
to the MoBiCS fasta will not be noticable.
The MoBiCS system is in its final field test stage. It will be available to
users within the BBSRC by September. At present there is no plans to make
the server available for users outside the BBSRC domain.
