I'm curious. Why is this posted under the following organisation address 

Organization: MRC Human Genome Mapping Project Resource Centre
Message-ID: <002e01bf6748$daedff80$e9534382 at np6kv>
NNTP-Posting-Host: mercury.hgmp.mrc.ac.uk

giving the impression that this is a commercial project of the MRC?

Is it or, forgive my cynicism, is someone within the MRC running a
business without them knowing, but using MRC resources to fund it? 


In case anyone gets the wrong idea I'm all for competition, I just don't
like the bionet newsgroups being used to advertise a commercial product.
It is strictly against the charter of these newsgroups. If people want a
commercial newsgroup then it is up to them to go through the formalities
to get one but in the meantime leave this one for it's intended purpose.  


The problem with being on the cutting edge is that you occasionally get 
sliced from time to time....
