Subject: Automated installation of enhanced GO database build

Hi Midori,

We  have  just released our 'wizard' for automated installation of the
'traditional' or 'enhanced' GO database build. The enhancement consists of a
retro-fitted mechanism for permitting queries by HUGO name, while
maintaining full backward compatibility. I have a powerpoint presentation
that describes the enhancement mechanism in some detail. I will try to get
that posted on the gominer site soon.

This runs only in a Unix environment, including mac OS X.

A local database build greatly increases the performance of applications
that access the GO database. However, installation is moderately difficult
for a non-specialist. Our resource lowers the energy barrier for someone who
would benefit from a local installation but is not willing to try it on
their own.

It is available for download from (first bulleted item).

If you think that this would be useful to GO users and developers, we would
be pleased if you were to provide a hyperlink from the GO Consortium web
