BioPerl Project Announcement

This is a brief announcement regarding two significant
recent donations to the Bioperl Project.

Compaq Computer Corporation ( has 
provided the project with a 600mhz Alpha system that 
will replace our current internet server. 
The donation was facilitated by the Compaq Bioinformatics 
Solutions Center and members of the Compaq High Performance 
Technical Computing Group. We owe a special debt of thanks to
Nat Goodman for getting the process started.

The new server is up and running in Cambridge, Massachusetts
with co-location hosting and bandwidth donated by Genetics 
Institute Inc. ( 

More specific details including plans for managing the
transition over to the new server will be posted and discussed
on the bioperl-guts mailing list.
