The University of Houston Genbank-server has expanded, with files from
the EMBL File server and other sources. By the end of the week, anonymous
FTP will be available for the PIR *data* files (protein.dat and new.dat),
and all of the molecular biology software.
When the anonymous FTP is up and stable, a short announcement will be
posted here with more details in the bio-software group.
Updated indices of the Mac, Dos, Vms, and Unix directories have been posted
to bio-software this afternoon.
To get started with the UH Genbank(*)-server, send the subject line

I would like to thank the Vice President for Information Technology at
the University of Houston, Dr. Ira Weiss, the University Computing Center,
the Institute for Molecular Biology, and Mr. Alan Pfeiffer-Traum for
their support of the Genbank-server. The server is also made possible by
a collaboration with Rainer Fuchs of the EMBL Data Library and Rob
Harper of EUROSOFT, and all those authors that have freely contributed
software to the molecular biology community.
