		       *** IMPORTANT NOTICE ***

The BIOSCI node at GenBank/IntelliGenetics has been
changed from the computer to
                          ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^    ^^^^^^^^^^^

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 computer will be
automatically received by, so this transition should occur
transparently to our users.  The October version of the info sheet
uses the new addresses however.  All posting and other
BIOSCI addresses are changed from xxxxxx at to
xxxxxx at

To repeat, the addresses will continue to function,
but people should begin adjusting their habits to utilize the new
hostname  "Old hands" will recognize 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 who will be posting an
introductory announcement fairly soon from Boston University.
