    Nature: Phones download DNA

    An article by John Whitfield:

    ``Biologists can now seize inspiration whenever it strikes, thanks to a new database that sends genetic information to mobile phones.

    ```I was sitting on the bus reading a paper in Nature, and I wanted to know what DNA sequences were available for the species I was looking at,' says genomics researcher Björn Ursing of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. `Then I looked at my mobile phone.'

    ``The wireless application protocol (WAP), which allows Internet access from a mobile phone, might be the answer, Ursing realized. He has now compiled a WAP-accessible database of all the 117 organisms that have had their genome sequenced.''
