The prototype version of the new Chlamydomonas database is now up and
running on the Plant Genome server at the National Agricultural Library.
There are two ways to reach it:
by World Wide Web, URL http://probe.nalusda.gov:8300
by gopher to probe.nalusda.gov
There's a pointer on the Chlamy gopher to "Agricultural genome
gopher at NAL" that will take you there also.
If you access ChlamyDB via gopher, select item #2 on probe's main
gopher menu ("Plant Genome Information") and then item #2 again,
("Access to Genome Databases") to reach the list of available genome
All the text information is contained in both versions. The WWW version
also displays maps of the nuclear, chloroplast and mitochondrial
genomes, and has some additional features.
Within a few weeks we will also have the database available in a form
that can be transferred by ftp to your own UNIX workstation or high-end
Macintosh. With this option you will be able to customize the database
to your own use if you like. You'll find that the displays are nicer
this way also.
