*** Biology FTP sites ***

Mon Sep 28 09:53:02 EST 1992

A couple of years ago Mike Gribskov put out a list of ftp sites
and E-mail servers. A lot of water has passed under the bridge
since that list was published.

   $	Molecular Biology FTP and Server List                     $
   $	Produced by: Michael Gribskov / gribskov at ncifcrf.gov      $
   $	Release of 16 December 1990                               $
   $	Extensively modified by Amos Bairoch: 18 December 1990    $

I would like to put together a current list of ftp sites. The reason
is two fold. 

1) I can add them to the ARCHIE database at nic.funet.fi so it will
   make it easier to do archie searches for biological programmes
2) I would make an up to date document that reflects the current status
   of biological servers of the network, and make it available through ftp
   or for reading via gopher.

So if your Institution provides some network service please let me know
about it... or if you know of a site that has been useful in providing
software, or if you run a site that distributes a small and select group
of programmes then please send the information to harper at convex.csc.fi

Mike split his list up into the following sections, and if you send in
any information then please adopt his format.
