Query e-mail server discontinued

The Query server, which provided e-mail access to a subset of Entrez databases, was discontinued on April 15, 2002. Entrez searchers should now use Web Entrez, available at, which provides access to more databases and features than were possible through the e-mail interface. Web Entrez integrates the scientific literature, DNA and protein sequence databases, 3-D protein structure and protein domain data, population study data sets, expression data, assemblies of complete genomes, and taxonomic information into a tightly interlinked system. Please refer to the Entrez Help document for further information.
