A few months ago a European group posted a notice about an interesting
piece of software (scripts actually) which would automatically send off a
DNA/protein sequence to genbank and parse the reply, notifying the user if
a new homologous sequence had been found. Running this on Solaris, the
system choked a bit because of the scripting,and I don't have sufficient
time to play around hacking the script;
Question: has anyone modified this program to run on Solaris (or even Irix
for that matter). It seems like a really useful idea which I could
find immediate use for. Alternatively, is there a similar publicly
available service running on the 'net somewhere?
Thanks for any help.
