                  (or GenBank subset search)

A new service is available to match your query sequence against subsets 
of nucleic and protein databanks. These subsets are chosen by you with
keyword selections in the sequence documentation.

There may be times when you will get better information by
eliminating unwanted sections of the databanks before performing a
sequence search. Given the large size and constant updates to the
biosequence databanks, it is difficult to produce subsets of these
data directly for similarity searching.  By coupling similarity
search software (FastA) with keyword selection software (SRS),
one can provide such searches fairly efficiently.

Find this service the Genbank-Sequences/ section at IUBio Archive

   Filename: http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu:81/srsfasta

This is an experimental service.  It may be unavailable at times.
It is running on a computer that is already frequently loaded
with other processing jobs (the flybase and iubio services).
Other biocomputing centers are most welcome to duplicate and
improve on this service.  Please contact Don Gilbert for help.

Your feedback on this service is essential to improving it. Please
send your suggestions and comments to software at bio.indiana.edu
If I receive enough requests from people, I can make a gopher+ version
of this available.

Acknowledgements:  This service is possible only due to the excellent
FastA software of W.Pearson and colleages, and the excellent SRS software 
of Thure Etzold and collleages.  I wish to thank Ugawa Yoshihiro, who 
brought to my attention the interest in such a service.
