Hi Julie,

Unfortunately, the 2.3.5 packages are old enough that we were not yet
stamping that information into the manual pages.  I can tell you that it
was built with what was the most recent version for celegans that UCSC
had "at that time", and that the vintage means that this package was
built around this time one year ago.  So if you really need to track it
down, you might be able to get that information from UCSC. 

But a better option is to use more current annotation packages.  If you
are willing to upgrade to the latest version (released just last
spring), then you will notice that the data about what build was used
has been improved to be much more specific.:

So for 2.4.1, if you look at the manual page for a mapping that is
impacted by UCSC data you will notice that it is much more specific
now.  So:


will show that it was built with:


Hope this helps you,
