	The FASTA package is a comprehensive set of programs for
sequence alignment, including local and global alignments and
heuristic database searches.  It is available from virginia.EDU
in "pub/fasta/fasta17.shar(.Z)".

	This package is not in the public domain and should not be
redistributed without permission, but it is freely available.
