PROMOTER SCAN II web page shutdown

The PROMOTER SCAN II web page has been temporarily shut down.
An unidentified user at Tokyo University in Japan has written
a script to constantly submit sequences to the PROMOTER SCAN
web page, causing a constant load on our College computer system
and preventing any other users from using the PROMOTER SCAN 
program.  This has gone on now for several days, and the only
way we have been able to stop it is to disable the web page.

We will enable the page again when we build in limits to use
and/or users.  We will notify users again when it is up and
running. From now on we will be strictly limiting free usage
of the program, and will be considering other options.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Dr. Dan S. Prestridge
Director, Advanced Biosciences Computing Center
