Timely worldwide distribution of biosequence and bioinformatics data depends on high performance networking and advances in Internet transport methods. The Bio-Mirror project focuses on providing up-to-date distribution of this rapidly growing and changing data. It offers FTP, Web and Rsync access to many high-volume databanks from several sites around the world. Experiments with data grids and other methods offer future improvements in biology data distribution.
