* EMBnet News bulletin of 20-Aug-2003 *

Dear Users,

New BLAST machine!

The Swiss EMBnet node has just acquired a new BLAST machine
consisting of a cluster of 24 Pentium PC under Linux from Paracel.
This machine is much faster than the previous one especially
for blastn searches. We encourage you to try it.

http://www.ch.embnet.org/software/aBLAST.html (advanced page)

If you are missing a database that would be very useful for your
research, don't hesitate to ask for it. We would be happy to add it
to our server.

New service at EMBnet: Help Desk

We have settled an official help desk email address:

helpdesk at mail.ch.embnet.org

When sending an email to this address you will automatically receive
a ticket with a number. Your question will be answered by our team
or by an expert in the field from the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics.

EMBnet.news is the official publication from the EMBnet organisation.
It provides users worldwide with information about the life of the nodes
