The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, October 10.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:


   ACeDB is a freely-distributed object-oriented database package that
   was developed for genome projects, but is a very general purpose
   system. It is available for most computer systems (Unix, Mac, NT,
   etc.), and binaries for ACeDB are available for most systems. Brian
   Fristensky, from the Department of Plant Science at The University of
   Manitoba, has used ACeDB in his lab for several years, and in his
   recent Bioinformatics course. This month, he will be describing and
   demonstrating this database for us.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   For this month only, the meeting will be held at the University of
   Manitoba's Fort Garry Campus, in the Carolyn Sifton Auditorium, Room
   130 Agriculture. An online campus map is available here:


   From Fort Garry and points North, enter the campus from Pembina Hwy.
   at University Crescent. From Winnipeg South and West, enter the campus
   from Pembina Hwy. at Chancellor Matheson Road. Go East on Matheson to
   University Crescent. Go south on University Crescent, and East on
   Dafoe Road. The Agriculture Building is on the right at 66 Dafoe.

   On-campus parking is free in the evening, and is available in lots off
   of Dafoe Road, or off of service roads near Agriculture. Winnipeg
   Transit busses 36, 60, 61, 62, 63, 72, 75, 76 and 78 all stop on the
   U. of M. campus on Dafoe Road.
