I am pleased to announce that the proposal to create

PLANT-SIGNAL-TRANSDUCTION/bionet.plants.signaltransduc (moderated)

passed with 105 YES votes and no opposing votes.  We will proceed to
create this newsgroup as soon as possible.

E-mail users, please wait for an announcement in this forum stating
that the group is ready before you try to request an e-mail

Proposal for PLANT-SIGNAL-TRANSDUCTION/bionet.plants.signaltransduc (moderated)

USENET newsgroup name:  bionet.plants.signaltransduc

Status:                 Moderated

One line Description:   Research on plant signal transduction

Moderation address:     bionet-plants-signaltransduc at net.bio.net
                        (plsignal-moderator at net.bio.net
                         is an alias for

Moderator:              Bratislav Stankovic

Mailing list name:      PLANT-SIGNAL-TRANSDUCTION

Newsgroup Character: bionet.plants.signaltransduc is a forum for
scientific discussions and a source of information for the community
of biologists interested in any aspect of signals and signaling in
plants and fungi. The name PLANT-SIGNAL-TRANSDUCTION was chosen to
reflect the common interest among scientists working with different
model systems.

Functions of the newsgroup:  The newsgroup will facilitate rapid
communication among research scientists and educators investigating the
mechanisms of plant signal transduction in many biological fields,
including but not limited to cellular biology, molecular biology,
developmental biology, genetics, (electro)physiology, ecology, taxonomy,
evolutionary biology, etc. and will thereby allow more rapid progress in
research involving plants.

The newsgroup will provide a forum for discussions of problems, old and new
ideas, journal publications, and recent developments in plant signal
transduction research.  The newsgroup will also provide sources of
practical advice, methodologies, answers to frequently asked questions
concerning understanding of the mechanisms of signal transduction in plants
and techniques used in such research, and availability of unique reagents
for research with plants (e.g. antibodies, cDNA clones, primers and gene
sequences, DNA libraries, mutants, etc.).

Finally, the newsgroup will serve as a bulletin board for announcements of
meetings, conferences, job opportunities, and funding sources of interest
to biologists studying signals and signaling in plants.

Subscribers are welcome from universities or any academic institutions,
government agencies, medical institutions, and industrial or commercial
organizations.  Contributions within the functions outlined above are
encouraged.

Moderation Policy:  Mass-posted commercial messages, chain letters, and
similar postings not germane to plants or signal transduction will be
deleted without comment. Inappropriate messages posted in good faith will
be returned to the sender.  Messages not strictly within the charter but
likely to be of interest to many subscribers (e.g., messages dealing with
certain aspects of signal transduction in animal systems) will be accepted.
