- A pathway for 1,2,3-tribromopropane has been added.  This pathway 
  was developed by a student in our 2000 Biocatalysis and Biodegradation 
- Many enzyme pages, such as the one for haloalkane dehalogenase, 
  now include links which search GenPept for protein sequences.  
  These searches retrieve many, but not all, such sequences.

- Several enzyme pages, such as the one for haloalkane dehalogenase, 
  now include links which search PDB for protein structures.

- The description of the enzyme page in About the UM-BBD has been
  updated to include GenPept and PDB searches.  These additions to the
  enzyme page were suggested by UM-BBD users.

- The KEGG: Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes now includes versions
  of 19 UM-BBD pathways and more are planned.  The KEGG metabolism page 
  includes UM-BBD pathways, indicated by "UMBBD", under Metabolism of 
  Other Substances.  We now link to that KEGG page and a page giving 
  use statistics for KEGG versions of UM-BBD pathways on the UM-BBD
  home page.

- On the Useful Internet Resources page, a link has been updated for 
  the Biodegradative Strain Database at Michigan State University.

If you have comments on any aspect of the UM-BBD, please let us know.
