I have composed the 'Biocomputing Survival Guide' which covers basics 
and most GCG programs in a cookbook-like fashion. There will be a 
book coming out early this year from Humana Press where I have written 
several chapters (this is the successor of the 1990 edition of the 
Biocomputing Tutorial). 

The survival guide can be purchased in Switzerland from Reinhard Doelz,
Biocomputing,Biozentrum der Universtiaet, Klingelbergstrasse 70, CH 4056
Basel, Switzerland (for a non-profit making nominal printcost-return 
fee). International Inquiries (same conditions) please to Paula

reditribute the material.
