Well, it looks like one indication of the growth of BIOSCI is the
speed at which newsgroups are being approved these days (perhaps we
may have to tighten up our criteria 8-)!  In the "good old days" I
could put out a call for votes and after 30 of the 60 days still not
have the required number of votes.  On occasion newsgroup proposals would not
be able to garner 40 votes in even 60 days.  The proposed NEUROSCI
group exceeded the required number of votes in less than 24 hours as
did the Computational Biology group a few days ago.  We will proceed
to add this newsgroup to the BIOSCI/bionet collection.  A message will
be posted to BIONEWS/bionet.general when it is ready and the
discussion leader will get the ball rolling on the new group.
