The following changes went into effect on 31 October 1990
(Halloween 8-):


The following newsgroups were closed due to lack of use:

BIO-CONVERSION  (bionet.technology.conversion)
RESEARCH-NEWS   (bionet.molbio.news)
BIOTECH		(bionet.techology.general)
PIR		(bionet.molbio.pir)
SWISS-PROT	(bionet.molbio.swiss-prot)

The mailing addresses for the last two newsgroups (PIR and SWISS-PROT)
were redirected to the PROTEIN-ANALYSIS newsgroup
(bionet.molbio.proteins) in the event that these older addressed are
used by anyone.  The staff at both the PIR and SWISS-PROT data banks
have agreed to this change.  BIOSCI users will still be able to post
messages about these data banks to the PROTEIN-ANALYSIS newsgroup.

If you have been a subscriber to either SWISS-PROT or PIR, but not to
PROTEIN-ANALYSIS, we urge you to request a subscription to the latter
newsgroup by sending your request to one of the following addresses
(NOT to this newsgroup, please!) depending upon your location:

Address					Location	Network
-------					--------	-------
biosci at irlearn.ucd.ie			Ireland		EARN/BITNET
biosci at uk.ac.daresbury			U.K.		JANET
biosci at bmc.uu.se			Sweden		Internet
biosci at genbank.bio.net			U.S.A. 		Internet/BITNET
