Human Chromosome 9 SCW Report now on WWW

The full report of the 1995 Single Chromosome Workshop for Human Chromosome
9, held at Williamsburg, Virginia in April is now available in Hypertext
form via the Chromosome 9 Home Page at the URL:-


It is fully cross-linked to the abstracts, figures, tables, etc and to
outside WWW and FTP resources mentioned in the text. The figures are
provided as both GIF files which can be viewed on-line and PostScript
which can be downloaded and printed out for higher quality.

Most of the report should be accessible to just about any browser, but
you will obviously need graphics capabilities to view the figures. It
definitely works best with NetScape, but Mosaic seems a good alternative.

A set of breakpoints in the CEPH families can be accessed from the report,
as well as an interactive form to request a subset of breakpoints suitable
for mapping a new marker. The information on cosmids is still being
assembled and tested, but we hope to have it on-line fairly soon.

Several small but important corrections have been incorporated into the
hypertext version, and retro-fitted to the plain text version available
by ftp and announced earlier. Anyone who has downloaded the original
should replace it with a new copy - ftp to ftp.gene.ucl.ac.uk, and get
all the .txt files from the directory /pub/c9workshop/1995.

Problems with (perhaps even praise of?) the Hypertext version should be
addressed to me (john at mrc-hbgu.ucl.ac.uk), and I would also be very
interested to hear from people using other Web browsers to look at these
pages, as I only have access to Mosaic and NetScape.
