The Biotechnology Information Center, an information center of the
National Agricultural Library, has developed a rich source of current
Biotechnology-related information available via Internet. 

The files at the site include bibliographies composed primarily of
citations from scientific journals and some popular periodicals (many with
abstracts), on subjects ranging from public perception to gene expression
in algae and fungi.  In addition, several miscellaneous publications
dealing with biotechnology meetings, directories and audio-visuals are
also available.  Numerous links to other biotechnology-related gophers
have also been included. 

In addition to the documents prepared by the Biotechnology Information
Center are files created by the Plant Genome and Data Information Center,
dealing with gene mapping in a range of plant species.  The gopher site
already contains more than eighty files, and new files are being added every 
week. 

To access these files via Gopher: 

telnet inform.umd.edu		OR  	gopher inform.umd.edu
   -Educational Resources
     -Biotechnology_Information_Center

If you prefer to access the documents via FTP, follow the same path as the 
one listed above.

If you have only email access, talk to your Internet provider about 
"FTPmail," a method of accessing these files via email.  Many of the 
current books about Internet also describe FTPmail.
