Hi, all netters,
The responses to my original posting, a short while ago, of "Is there
any bacteriologist out there?" were rather encouraging and had since
snow-balled into calls for establishment of microbiologists news group
within the bionet system.
To actually test the feasibility of this idea, I would propose that we
start by producing a sort of "Microbiologists Directory". This so
called "Directory" will list the name and e-mail address (with
possibility of adding FAX and hard mailing address) of interested partici-
pants according to first the organism they work with (at the genus
level), and then again with the nature of their research work.
For example, I am currently working on the assay of antibiotics produced by
Streptomyces against Plasmodium falciparum; therefore, my name would
appear under the Streptomyces, Plasmodium, and antibiotics assay listing.
This "Directory" will deliberately exclude those of you who work with
yeast and those doing molecular biological works since specialised news
group catering to both groups already exist in the bionet system.
However, I would welcome your comments on this point.
I shall periodically post this proposal, once every ten days, I think,
between 3/7/94 to 4/17/94; those interested or would add any comments
can mail me at the above address and I would be happy to act as a ad hoc
compiler until I can find somebody who love to carry out the actual work.
So, let the dance begins, shall we say?
