Version 3 of Genbank Search stack for Macintoshes is 
now available.  This version sends requests to
the BLAST search server at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.

The GenBank Search is a Macintosh Hypercard stack for 
interacting with the computer services from Genbank
at NCBI.  These free search and fetch services thru 
electronic mail include:

* Searching of the current GenBank, or several other databanks,
  for similarities with a query nucleic acid or protein sequence 
  of yours, and

* Retreival of a sequence in the current GenBank by keywords,
  locus name or accession number.  Several other databanks are 
  also available for retreival.  

To use this GenBank Search stack, you must have:
--  a Macintosh with Hypercard version 2, and Mac System 6.0.5
    or later,
--  that Mac needs to be connected to the national Internet 
    network, thru an Appletalk or Ethernet cable,
--  that Mac must have the MacTCP communications software, 
    and Hypercard version 1.2 or later, from Apple Computer,
--  you must have a valid Internet return mail address. 

This stack includes a simple sequence editor, so you can 
enter your sequence directly here, and it includes features 
to read from disk a variety of sequence formats. 

GenBank Search stack is available via anonymous FTP or
Internet Gopher to ftp.bio.indiana.edu, in folder
/molbio/mac as gbsearch-ncbi.hqx.
