Proposal for moving the newsgroup Mollusc Molecular News to bionet:

The Mollusc Molecular News is a newsgroup with approximately 200
members whose research involves working with mollusc DNA.  Past topics
of discussion have included PCR and RAPD primers that are useful for
molluscs, dna isolation methods that are helpful in removing mollusc
mucus from DNA, and changes in mitochondrial gene order among
different groups of molluscs.  I also compile a hard copy newsletter
over email every year and mail it out via Canada Post to everyone on
our mailing list.  I agree to continue as discussion leader once our
group is moved to bionet.  We would like status as a full-fledged
newsgroup from the beginning so our postings can be archived and
available through USENET.

Dr. Elizabeth Grace Boulding
