NCBI FTP Address To Be Changed

Dear GenBank Users,

As has been mentioned in the GenBank release notes since August of
last year, NCBI's FTP address will soon be changed:

	old address: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

	new address: ftp.ncbi.nih.gov

For the moment, the old address still works. But due to the volume
of FTP traffic at our site, we cannot continue to support the old
address much beyond October 15, 2001.

(In fact, if FTP traffic levels increase substantially, we may not
 be able to continue supporting the old address even that long.)

So we urge all users of the NCBI FTP server to switch to the new
address sooner, rather than later. Please contact the NCBI Service
Desk if you have any questions about this change:

	info at ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

Thanks for your patience!

Mark Cavanaugh
