I downloaded this package and the postscript manual ... I am _very_
impressed. I am just starting to use it, but I can already see that
this is a very fine piece of software which will become an essential
part of our project here ... It is almost scary! ;-)
The yeast map are "poor" to say the least, but they are a great "look"
at what this program will be able to do. I highly recommend for anyone
dealling with DNA from as small as CH I of yeast to as big as CH I of
humans to look at this package. I will comment more on this later when
I become proficient with it, which should not take too long.

Nice to see the human genome project helping the yeast genome project!
