 New Data:
  A set of 51,623 mass spectroscopy peptides from Gennifer Merrihew at Michael MacCoss's laboratory
 has been added to this release.  Proteins have been fragmented and the molecular weights of the
 fragments have then been used to deduce the sequence of the fragments by comparing to a database
 of C. elegans protein sequences.
  The peptides were mapped to the genome using the known positions of the peptides in the matching
 proteins and the known positions of the proteins' genes on the genome.
  This data gives confirmatory evidence of many exons and (where they span splice sites) some introns.

 Quick installation guide for UNIX/Linux systems
 1. Create a new directory to contain your copy of WormBase,
         e.g. /users/yourname/wormbase
 2. Unpack and untar all of the database.*.tar.gz files into
         this directory. You will need approximately 2-3 Gb of disk space.
 3. Obtain and install a suitable acedb binary for your system
         (available from
 4. Use the acedb 'xace' program to open your database, e.g.
         type 'xace /users/yourname/wormbase' at the command prompt.
 5. See the acedb website for more information about acedb and
         using xace.
