Macintosh versions of the most recent C.elegans acedb release are 
now available as self-extracting archives from the following two


These directories contain macace.WS1.4-16.sea.bin (the version with
sequences) and macace.WG1.4-5.sea.bin (the version without).  

The WS1 version is now 136Mb compressed and 440Mb uncompressed, much
bigger than before.  The main reasons are that there is much more
sequence annotation now, and it actually contains the sequence.  The
DNA sequence itself was ommitted accidentally from the 4-8 macace
version!  This explains the dashes seen when trying to look at
sequence in macace.WS1.4-8.  Many apologies.

Please read the README files in the macace directories for further
information on macace.  Further information about the latest data
release was in the release email message for the Unix version,
available from the file acedb/celegans/letter.aug96 in the ftp
