DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank Feature Table Canadian mirror and DOS version 
---------------------------------------------------------------

Introduction
------------
The Organelle Genome Megasequencing Program (OGMP) has put together
an enhanced version of the "DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank Feature Table definition"
document on the WWW and in DOS format.


Rationale
---------
* Enhanced hyperlinks
  Additional hyperlinks not available in the EBI version of this document
  have been created.

* Mirror site
  Connect times to Europe are too slow to effectively use this document
  as an on-line reference in Canada.

* DOS version
  Constant use of this table definition necessitated having it available at
  all times for reference. A DOS version was created so that it could be used
  on a portable computer not connected to the Internet.
  

About the OGMP version
----------------------
The OGMP (Organelle Genome Megasequencing Program) HTML version of the
"DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank Feature Table Definition" document is based on the EBI
version.  In the process of constructing this version, many additional
hyperlinks were created and a number of small errors were corrected. Otherwise
the content of the document is identical to the EBI version.

The WWW version of this OGMP version of the "DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank Feature Table
Definition" can be fond at:

About the OGMP DOS version
--------------------------
The major difference between the DOS version and the WWW version is file
names. As DOS is restricted to eight characters preceding the extension,
the meaningful UNIX file names (and all internal references to these file
names) had to be discarded and replaced with an arbitrary file naming.
However, as file names are not used once inside the document, arbitrary naming
is adequate.  The only exception is the table of contents of the document
which is called "top.htm".

The DOS version can be obtained at the following URL:

EBI
---
Thanks to the European Bioinformatics Institute for providing the raw
material for this version.  The EBI version can be found on the net at:
