Once again, I am making my "Annotated Guide to the Brookhaven Protein 
Data Bank" available.  This file includes listings for all of the 
files in the January, 1994 release.  The main additions this year are a 
complete listing of all of the lysozyme files, a better organization of 
the DNA files, and, most importantly, structure classifications for all 
of the protein chains in the data bank.

There is also a companion file which lists all of the sequence 
relations among the individual protein chains.  This file is called 
the "Sequence Relations" file.

Most importantly, if there are errors, which there probably are, given
that we are dealing with 2327 files, I would appreciate being informed 
of such.  

Please cite the work as suggested in the files if you use it in your 
own work.  A write up of the work has been submitted for publication 
and may appear later this year.  If so, the suggested citation will
