At the request of Joe Ecker and others who attended an NCHGR-sponsored
meeting on YACs a few months ago, we have created a new prototype
newsgroup (i.e., just a mailing list) for Yeast Artificial

This list will operate only by e-mail (not on USENET) and only from in the U.S. (not from in the U.K.) for six
months to see if it can build up sufficient usage to pass a vote for
full newsgroup status.

If you are interested in participating, please send your request for
an e-mail subscription to the YAC list to

			  biosci at

All requests for YAC should be sent to the above address regardless of
your geographical location.

If you want to post *messages* to the YAC group (BUT NOT SUBSCRIPTION
REQUESTS!!!!), the mailing address is yac at  Again, please
address subscription requests to biosci at and scientific
correspondence to yac at
