CALL FOR DISCUSSION: BioThermoKinetics/bionet.metabolic-reg

We have received the following proposal to convert the BIOSCI
prototype newsgroup BTK-MCA into a full BIOSCI newsgroup (i.e. both
mail AND USENET access) called BioThermoKinetics/bionet.metabolic-reg.
I will also be posting this notice to the BTK-MCA mailing list.

Discussion will now be open through 14 June on BIOFORUM/bionet.general
(*not* on BIONEWS/bionet.announce or BTK-MCA).

Please do not post one-line messages saying only "I am in favor of
such a newsgroup".  We will collect votes later.  The discussion
period is an opportunity for anyone to bring up reservations about the
proposed charter and to propose modifications prior to the vote.  The
discussion leader may submit a revised proposal in light of the
discussion, and the new charter would be included in the call for votes
which will go out on 15 June.

Please be aware that only one vote is counted per e-mail address, so
it is necessary to have your own account in order to vote.  Multiple
votes from the same address are not accepted.  If you are interested
in the following newsgroup, but do not have an e-mail address of your
own, please obtain one from your computer center before the call for
votes is issued.

``The International Study Group for BioThermoKinetics is an informal
group devoted to the quantitative understanding of the kinetics,
thermodynamics and control of biological processes at the cellular
level ... BTK meetings are aimed at providing a forum for a vivid
exchange of ideas between experimenters with a keen eye for
quantitative aspects, theoreticians with a keen eye for the
experimental practice and those in between.'' (Preface, Programme for
5th BTK meeting) This mailing list is intended to provide not only
some continuity between the biennial meetings but also to serve to
propagate interest in the subjects covered.  Informal participation is
welcomed from all fields (and at all levels), and it is particularly,
but not exclusively, encouraged in the domain of Metabolic Control
Analysis --- the investigation of control in biological systems.
