BIONET.MICROBIOLOGY has been up and functional for the past week and
1/2, after it was voted into existence by an overwhelming and
incredible majority of 357 YES to 2 NO votes.
I have been told that many interested people cannot receive the
newsgroup via their local newsserver, probably because it has not yet
been added to the list by their local news-aministrator. The best way
to go is to contact your local newsadministrator to request that
bionet.microbiology is to be added to the list. 
Everyone else in the AMERICAS AND THE PACIFIC RIM who has no access to
a newsserver and wishes to subscribe to bionet.microbiology can send an
e-mail to 

biosci-server at 

with the following text in THE BODY OF THE MESSAGE:

If you are located in EUROPE, AFRICA, OR CENTRAL ASIA and wish to

Dave Kristofferson has prepared an excellent info sheet on the
BIOSCI/bionet newsgroups which gives many useful hints concerning
subscribing/unsubscribing to newsgroups and much more. This "frequently
asked questions" file is a MUST for everyone, especially if you are new
to network news. This file can be retrieved by e-mail by including the

in the body of an e-mail message addressed to the e-mail address

Hope this helps,
