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
to the address: fileserv at gunbrf.bitnet
(The '.bitnet' suffix is required for Internet->Bitnet e-mail)
You may also include the e-mail message lines:
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,
