This message is directed at prospective graduate students in 
the biological sciences, biology teachers, and college 

In order to promote and publicize the consolidation of 
several graduate programs in the molecular biosciences, we at 
Rutgers - The State University of New Jersey, and UMDNJ 
(University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey) have 
created an informative computer program that is available for 
the asking.

This program allows users to read about the research 
interests of more than 120 faculty members working at 
Rutgers/UMDNJ in the areas of biochemistry, microbiology, 
molecular biology, biotechnology, molecular genetics, 
macromolecular structure, computational molecular biology, 
molecular virology, molecular biophysics, and protein 
engineering. It also describes some of the facilities 
available to students at the two universities; informs 
prospective applicants of the history and nature of the 
universities and their graduate programs; and provides 
application information.

Users can print out much of this material. They can also 
access information via key word searches. In addition, there 
is a brief help facility, but the program is largely self-

The program runs only on Macintosh computers and is available 
via the Internet as a binhexed, self-extracting archive that 
can be obtained by anonymous ftp from in the 
grad-program directory (download the file MBS.sea-hqx).

Interested parties can also obtain a copy of the program on a 
disk by writing to:
