I have two points here:
1) Autoseqs mailing list was not a "mainstream" bionet/BIOSCI group,
and therefore did not have the advantage of the "advertizing" the
other groups have.
2) I think the volume of Autoseqs was sporatic, at best. One would
see "peaks" of activity. I think "automated sequencing" of any
DNA deserves it's own group, and will get a large readership over
the next few months.

this topic will be of little interst to the sequencers of non-human
DNA, another reason for a seperate group for sequencers vs
