Dear colleagues,

Please try our new free bioinformatics software
product:

BioDownloader is an application for downloading and/or
updating files from ftp/http servers. The program has
unique features that are specifically designed to deal
with bioinformatics data files and servers:

- optimized to work with vast amount of data and very
large file sets (~ 10,000 - 100,000).

- allows the selective retrieval of only the required
files (file masks, ls-lR parsing, recursive search,
updates)

- has a built-in repository containing the settings
for the most common bioinformatics download needs

- built-in wizard for batch post-processing of
downloaded files (archive extraction, file conversion,
etc.)

Availability: BioDownloader is free to researchers in
both non-profit and commercial institutions. It is
provided as a standalone application from:
