*** IMPORTANT NOTICE ***
The BIOSCI node at GenBank/IntelliGenetics has been
changed from the computer genbank.bio.net to net.bio.net.
Kenton Hoover and I will continue to run the BIOSCI node at
IntelliGenetics in the post-GenBank period. Alan Bleasby, Steve
Marshall, Paul Griffiths and David Hines at SERC Daresbury Laboratory
will continue to serve their BIOSCI user community.
Messages sent to the old genbank.bio.net computer will be
automatically received by net.bio.net, so this transition should occur
transparently to our users. The October version of the info sheet
uses the new net.bio.net addresses however. All posting and other
BIOSCI addresses are changed from xxxxxx at genbank.bio.net to
xxxxxx at net.bio.net.
To repeat, the genbank.bio.net addresses will continue to function,
but people should begin adjusting their habits to utilize the new
hostname net.bio.net. "Old hands" will recognize net.bio.net from
BIONET days; the address has the virtue of being reachable from any
site in the world regardless of the ordering convention used for host
The BIOSCI/bionet WAIS sources biosci.src and
biology-journals-contents.src are temporarily out of commission but
will be back on-line soon.
The same is true for the bionet.molbio.genbank.updates newsgroup. The
data feed will be resumed shortly from NCBI.
One new newsgroup has been added to discuss issues pertaining to women
professionals in biology. The mailing list name is WOMENBIO and
newsgroup name is bionet.women-in-bio. The discussion leader is
Cassandra Smith (cls at buenga.bu.edu) who will be posting an
introductory announcement fairly soon from Boston University.
