Version 2+BLAZE of Genbank Search stack for Macintoshes is 
now available.  This version incorporates requests to
the BLAZE search server at genbank.bio.net.

 NOTE: The free search services from Gebank.Bio.Net (at
 IntelliGenetics) will terminate at the end of September
 this year.  The National Center for Biotechnology 
 Information (NCBI) will be providing similar BLAST

 that time, there will be a new version of this stack

GenBank Search is a Macintosh Hypercard stack for

* Retreival of a sequence in the current GenBank by locus 
name or accession number.

network, thru an Appletalk or Ethernet cable,
--  your 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.
