	o GenPept (translated protein-coding sequences) Release 81 is 
	  now available from BioSCAN server.  Syntax for specifying
	  sequences is as follows:
	  	QUERY gp:X59645		/* GenPept by accession number */
	  	QUERY gp:AFHGDC_1	/* GenPept by locus name */

	o The BioSCAN e-mail server databases have been updated.  The current
	  versions are: GenBank Release 82.0, SWISS-PROT Release 28, and
	  Protein Information Resource (PIR) Release 38.

        o BioSCAN (Biological Sequence Comparative Analysis Node) is a 
          computational tool designed for similarity analysis of biological
          sequences.  Its massively parallel computer system performs rapid,
          rigorous, searches of biosequence databases and is compatible with 
          popular software packages such as BLAST and FASTA. 

          To receive current set of instructions on using the BioSCAN 
          e-mail server, send an e-mail to the address "bioscan at cs.unc.edu".
          Put the word "HELP" on a line by itself in the body of the 
          message.  A tutorial ("tutor.txt") can be retrieved via anonymous
          FTP to "ftp.cs.unc.edu" from "/pub/bioscan" directory.  Please 
          send your questions and comments to "bioscan-info at cs.unc.edu".
