SCHISTOSOMA GENOME PROJECT GOPHER SERVER - CALL FOR INFO

As part of our contribution to the Schistosoma genome project, we will be 
placing genome project and related data on the Natural History Museum's 
gopher server. In time we hope that this data (plus images) will also be 
accessable through the Museum's WWW server.

Due to other commitments, construction of this server is very much a "spare 
time" (Ha-Ha) occupation. This means that, with the exception of DNA 
sequences, we do not have the time to go hunting out the data to put 
on the server. We need your cooperation and contributions to make 
this server a valuable reference/contact point for the Schisto 
community.

We are looking for data under the following categories:

SCHISTOSOME RESEARCH LABORATORIES AND PERSONNEL
LAB TITLE

  <?> SEARCH FOR A SEQUENCE ENTRY BY DESCRIPTION
 <D> EXPRESSED SEQUENCE TAG SEQUENCE DATA
  <F> single file containing genbank accession numbers and descriptions for all currently lodged dbEST entries
