In article <1993Sep8.170115.10912 at leland.Stanford.EDU> Mike Cherry,
cherry at cycle.Stanford.EDU writes about the genome-gopher.stanford.edu
yeast database.

It has tremendous potential, for it is very easy to use.  A mechanism is
needed for the submission of data that is so easy that it will be used. 
Many labs have cloned multicopy suppressors or genome pieces in a
two-hybrid screen.  For many of these clones small bits have been
sequenced, but have not scored a hit in the database.  Hybidization to
the prime clone filters has identified a map location, but no known gene.
 Many multicopy suppressors sit unloved in the freezer because there are
other, more interesting, clones to characterize.  

Entering these clones into the database, by prime clone number, would
allow new regulatory connections to be established when the region is
sequenced or cloned in a subsequent screen.
