As announced on this forum, the Arabidopsis database recently moved to

In preparing our strategy for developing the database, we'd be interested
in the community's reponses to the following questions: 

1. What do you see as the two or three most needed Web-based features
(analysis-tools, types of data, etc.) for your use of Arabidopsis

And, for those current users of the Macintosh or UNIX version of AAtDB
(the previously created ACE-based database): 

2. Would you download periodic updates to the database (>30MB)? 

3. If downloading, would you get the Macintosh or UNIX version (or both). 

Thank you for your time in answering these questions. Please respond to me
via e-mail at flanders at

P.S. For those of you that are so inclined, WWW forms have recently been
placed on AtDB ( to enable users to
perform BLAST and FASTA searches on _just_ Arabidopsis sequences.
