RAPD is one of many new techniques based on PCR.  Since PCR has become  
such a large part of molecular biology, I would propose a new USENET
group "bionet.molbio.pcr".  The RAPD-L ( and any other PCR ) lists 
could be merged into a new bionet PCR group.

Since PCR is already a popular subject in the methods and reagents
group this may help reduce the number of "54 unread messages"
announcements I often get there.  Even with threaded readers this
can be overwhelming and confusing for some.

In any case I vote yes to get RAPD-L into a USENET group.  The fewer
mailing lists I have to fight with the better.
