Announcing ConsInspector 3.0 for UNIX and VAX/VMS
=================================================

ConsInspector is a program to scan nucleic acid sequences for matches to a
precompiled library of transcription factor binding sites. The program
carries out an extensive examination of binding site candidates: the real
sequence is compared with randomly shuffled versions and sequence regions
surrounding the conserved binding site are included into the analysis.

ConsInspector 3.0 is now available. Release 3.0 includes a considerably
extended library of binding site descriptions (consensus profiles). The
library encompasses now 37 consensus profiles of the following groups:
- prokaryotes (2 profiles)
- vertebrates (16 profiles)
- viruses (10 profiles)
- yeast (9 profiles)
Most consensus profiles of the original library have been improved by
inclusion of additional sequences.


ConsInspector 3.0 is available for UNIX and VAX/VMS at

        ftp://ariane.gsf.de/pub/unix/
        ftp://ariane.gsf.de/pub/vax/

                   or

        http://www.gsf.de/biodv/consinspector.html


MAC- and DOS-Versions of ConsInspector 3.0 are not yet ready and will be
announced at a later date.
