More Drosophila theory on sunsite.unc.edu

Last week, I posted an article here that noted the availability of a
theoretical paper by Reinitz et al. on stripe formation in Drosophila
from a developmental perspective.
Now, the archive has a second, related paper: a pre-print (sans
figures, alas) of an article by Kerszberg and Changeux, scheduled
to appear in PNAS in the next few months, that approaches the same
problem from a genetic perspective.
These two papers are available on sunsite.unc.edu via gopher (path
Ecology and Evolution/ Research papers.../ Drosophila.../) or FTP
The README file there reads in part:
This directory contains two new research papers on theoretical models
of stripe formation in early embryo development of Drosophila.
Positional_Info.* Reinitz et al. (1992) Model for cooperative
technical report control of positional information in Drosophila
figures included by bicoid and maternal hunchback.
grad.* Kerszberg and Changeux (1994) A model for
PNAS pre-print reading morphogenetic gradients: Autocatalysis
figures missing and competition at the gene level.
See the individual README files for brief abstracts and other information.
