Thanks for the effort, Rob. May I suggest the following:
If you separate the references from the sequence, it would be easier
We all know about weakness and strengths of the WAIS service. Most
of the requests I get by phone fax email or other with respect to
*single* entries is the Accession number. What about just making an index
for this and let people use ftp's or file servers for sequece retrieval?
On the other hand I think that it is very nice to have such a service
available, so, provided that you'd still got enough disk space, keep on .
