Sorry about the previous duff posting!

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 committments, 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 assistance and contributions to make 
this server a valuable reference/contact point for the Schisto 
community.

We are looking for data under the following categories:
