                           human, fly, yeast, C. briggsae, and SwissProt & TrEMBL proteins.

xii) best_blastp_hits_brigprot.WS207.gz - for each C. briggsae protein, lists Best blastp match to

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.
