I guess it's time to repost my list of LISTSERV groups of
(sometimes questionable) relevance to biology.  So here goes...


In addition to the extensive discussion groups available via
electronic mail subscription from BIOSCI at GENBANK.BIO.NET (as
well as via Usenet), there are a number of other subscription
lists that might be of interest to you.

If you know of any remotely biology-related (non-medical)
groups not on this list, please let me know.  Also, general
comments are always welcome.

The above are standard LISTSERV subscription lists.  To subscribe
to these, send email to the LISTSERV userid at the appropriate
node.  For example, to subscribe to the CONSLINK list, send email
to LISTSERV at SIVM, with no Subject line, and in the body of the
message put:  SUBSCRIBE CONSLINK Your Name

To reach a Bitnet node from the Internet, simply append ".bitnet"
to the email address, thusly:  LISTSERV at SIVM.bitnet

Some of these lists are also available via Usenet under the
bit.listserv hierarchy:


There are now roughly 2000 subscription lists available through
LISTSERVs, and there are another 1500 discussion groups available
through Usenet.  At present, a total of about 160 subscription
lists are paired with discussion groups:  the 30 BIOSCI groups
and 130 others.

If your site has Usenet, but not the bit.listserv or bionet
hierarchies, ask your system administrator to add them.  If
your site does not have a Usenet feed, ask for that too.
For help with getting Usenet brought to your site, send email
to biosci at

Some additional (non-LISTSERV) lists are given below.  The
first column is the list name itself, and the second is the
address to which e-mail requesting a subscription should be
sent.  Since a human being reponds to e-mail sent to request
addresses, you should include the word "subscribe" in the
subject line, and put your name and institution in the text,
as well as any comments or questions you may have.
