The new macromolecular crystallography newsgroup

XTAL-LOG/bionet.xtallography

is now open for use.  The discussion leader, Morten Kjeldgaard, will
post an introductory message in the near future.

If you have USENET news access, simply read and post messages to

bionet.xtallography.

If you need e-mail subscriptions, please request them by mailing to
either

biosci at daresbury.ac.uk		Europe, Africa, and Central Asia

biosci at genbank.bio.net		Americas and the Pacific Rim


E-mail postings to the newsgroup should be sent to either

xtal-log at daresbury.ac.uk		Europe, Africa, and Central Asia

xtal-log at genbank.bio.net		Americas and the Pacific Rim


The contents of the USENET newsgroup and e-mail distributions are
identical.

The charter of the newsgroup follows:

The topics of the protein crystallography newsgroup would be
(following the flow of crystal analysis):

        (a) Crystallization
                (i)  Methods: "How to", Carter & Carter, chemicals
                (ii) Robots
                (iii) Software: Planning (Carter & Carter), database(!!!)
                (iv) Purification
        (b) Data collection
                (i)  Hardware: generators, cameras, goniostats
                (ii) Area detectors: FAST, Siemens, Hamlin, Image Plates
                (ii) Software: Methods, programs, EEC workshop on 2D software
