     This is to announce the availability of release 137.0 of the GenPept(R) 
(GenBank Gene Products) Database.  GenPept is provided in a format similar 
to that formerly distributed by GenBank(R) under the administration of 
Intelligenetics Inc.  This GenPept release IS _NOT_ AN OFFICIAL RELEASE FROM 
THE NCBI-GENBANK, but an attempt to provide a data file format compatible 
with existing software products.  

This data format is suitable as an input data file for the GCG program
genbanktogcg -genpept.  Compatibility with other software has not been tested.
