I don't :-(

Despite there being links on the EBI web site they lead nowhere.

Google didn't help either.

I can't agree more but there appears to be very little out there. One 
reason why ABI have launched their Ready-to-Use assays??

But where is the data that was in the database?

This site 
holds a list of all molecular biology databases, but there is no primer 

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing noise they make as
they go flying by.
