PIR release 32.0 available

	Release 32.0 of the PIR protein sequence database is now
available from ftp.bchs.uh.edu in pub/gene-server/incoming/pir32.
Two directories are available, vms (the vms format sequences) and
ascii (the blocked ascii co-data format).

	In the past, I have attempted to provide the binary VMS files
(various index files) in a correct vax binary format.  This time, I
have given up.  It appears that very few VMS FTP programs can transfer
binary files from other FTP programs, unix or VMS.  (It is unfortunate
that VMS vendors have not figured out how to transfer binary files
amongst one another (and unix) via FTP.)  As a result, there is no
rel32.bck file this time.  Various binary VMS files are available in
the pir32/vms directory, but they are almost certainly not intact
after the transfer.  The standard *.seq, *.ref, *.nam, *.cdx files
should be OK.  The CODATA files should be fine; they are no longer
blocked.

	All files have been compressed with the unix compress command.

	Dan Davison, who curates the ftp.bchs.uh.edu server, is out of
town for a few days, so I announcing the files in his absence.  It is
likely that they will be moved when he returns.

  NRL_3D is a sequence--structure database derived from the 3 dimensional
  structure of proteins deposited with the Brookhaven National Laboratory's
  Protein Data Bank.  This database was conceived, developed and tested by
  K. Namboodiri, N. Pattabiraman, A. Lowrey, and B. Gaber at the Naval
  Research Laboratory, Washington, D.C. and incorporated into the *PIR System
  by David George at the National Biomedical Research Foundation, Washington,
  DC. This version was constructed via software developed by Masami Kusunoki,
  of the Institute for Protein Research, Osaka University, Osaka, Japan, and 
  John S. Garavelli of the National Biomedical Research Foundation, Washington,
  DC. 

  This database may be redistributed without prior consent, provided that
  this notice be given to each user and that the words "Derived from" shall
  precede this notice if the database has been altered by the redistributor.

  *PIR is a registered mark of NBRF. The PIR is supported by NIH and NSF.
