retrieval of prot. seq from PIR

 Tao Tao asks about PIR sequence retrieval:

As of 1 Dec 1990, you can get info on how to do this by sending the 1-line
e-mail message:

HELP On-Line_Access

to the address:          fileserv at gunbrf.bitnet

(The '.bitnet' suffix is required for Internet->Bitnet e-mail)

for other help.  As I read it, this PIR access is NOT free ...

  Back in Nov. 1989, Amos Bairoch indicated (INFO-GCG list) that the SwissProt

entries DR line(s) cross-reference SwissProt to PIR & EMBL (when applicable).
This is sort of a backwards way to find the PIR=EMBL #s, but might help.  
More info on request (net bandwidth, you know 8-).

Hope it helps,
Tom Easton
