As announced about a month ago, the Protein Data Bank, the
international collection of protein crystallographic coordinates, is
available for anonymous FTP from ftp.bchs.uh.edu in
pub/gene-server/pdb/.... Files are kept compressed, so use binary mode
when FTP'ing.

This service is temporary until the Protein Data Bank gets their own
FTP site arranged.

NOTE: you must know which files you want -- only the coordinate files
are available. No guide to the coordinate files is here.

See the file README for important redistribution information.
