Proposal to establish bionet.carotenoids

Discussion leader: Pablo A. Scolnik (scolnipa at esvax.dnet.dupont.com)

Purpose: discussions regarding the chemistry, biochemistry,
photochemistry, role in photosynthesis, genetics, metabolism, and

information exchange on pure compounds, mutants, techniques, and
recombinant DNA constructs.

Your vote should contain a single line:

YES on bionet.biochem.carotenoids

if you favor creation of the newsgroup or

NO on bionet.biochem.carotenoids

if you think that the creation of this newsgroup will adversely affect
the BIOSCI system.  If you are simply not interested in participating
in this newsgroup, please don't cast a NO vote, but instead just don't
vote at all.

The newsgroup proposal must receive at least 80 YES votes to pass and
the number of YES votes must be greater than the number of NO votes by
at least 40.  Discussion of the newsgroup proposal is now closed and
we strongly discourage posting any messages in other forums about the
fact that a CALL FOR VOTES has been issued.
