OWL 29.2

The latest version of the OWL database (29.2) is now available from the
usual anonymous ftp sites:

  ftp.seqnet.dl.ac.uk          pub/database/owl
  ncbi.nlm.nih.gov             repository/OWL

People who have ftp'd this database between Sunday and this announcement
may have experienced problems with indexing the database for GCG. As of
this announcement we have made a trivial modification to one of the
bibliographic entries to circumvent a GCG bug to whom the problem has
been reported. The info file has also been amended since the pre-release
on Sunday to relect that PIR 51 is used in this version of OWL rather than
PIR 50 as was originally mistakenly given.

The info file is appended.

    NRL_3D Contains entries for which an X-Ray crystal structure exists
    in Brookhaven. The codes for these entries start with NRL_ followed by
    the Brookhaven database code.

    Note:
  
    1. Starting with OWL release 26.0, only the sequences from NRL_3D that
       DO NOT occur in other sequence databases are included.
       One additional line is included in the reference file that
       provides a cross reference to the corresponding entry in the
       PRINTS Protein Finger Print database.
  
    2. Starting with OWL release 26.2, the Genbank entries are extracted
       from the translations in the NCBI supplied Genbank files 

    3. Starting with OWL release 26.3.
       One additional line is included in the reference file that
       provides a cross reference to the corresponding entry in
       NRL_3D (Brookhaven code).

    4. Starting with OWL release 27.1 sequences from PIR4 are included
