``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.

PLEASE BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE FORMAT BELOW - WE OFTEN RUN MORE THAN ONE
VOTE AT A TIME SO A SIMPLE "YES" OR "NO" MESSAGE WITHOUT THE NEWSGROUP
NAME MAY BE AMBIGUOUS.  Your vote should contain a single line:

YES on BTK-MCA

if you favor creation of the newsgroup or

NO on BTK-MCA

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.  Permission has been
granted to distribute this to the current BTK-MCA list.

				Dave Kristofferson
				BIOSCI/bionet Manager
