I have received the following proposal to form an electronic bulletin
board for the chromosome 22 community. Under BIOSCI regulations,
proposals are put to a vote of our readership (as described below) and
at least 40 "yes" votes must be obtained within 60 days before the
group can be established. Voting is now open and the voting addresses
are given below. Votes must be received by 21 December 1990.

This is the first electronic announcement of intent to establish an
electronic bulletin board on the topic of Human Chromosome 22. The
bulletin board will be accessible to all persons that use electronic mail
-i.e. an international group. Although the exact nature of the bulletin
board will evolve with use, its primary purpose will be to allow more
frequent contact among persons interested in items related to chromosome
22. This includes persons interested in the human genome program of
mapping and sequencing chromosome 22, as well as persons interested in
specific genes, chromosomal abnormalities and disease phenotypes related to
22. It can be a forum to distribute information concerning new clones,
references, cell lines, genes, polymorphisms, and scientific meetings
related to chromosome 22.
The proposed electronic bulletin board will be part of the
international BIOSCI bulletin board network. To become a reality, forty
different people with distinct e-mail addresses must reply to this
announcement within two months. These responses must be sent to one
of the "biovote" addresses below (depending upon your location/network).
