Voting is now open on YEAST/bionet.molbio.yeast.  The revised charter
for YEAST/bionet.molbio.yeast is provided below.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Proposal to establish YEAST/bionet.molbio.yeast

Discussion leader:  B.F. Francis Ouellette
		    Manager, Yeast Chromosome I & XVI Sequencing Projects
		    Dept of Biology, McGill University, 
		    1205 Dr Penfield Ave,
		    Montreal, Qc, Canada
		    H3A 1B1

	Tel: (514) 398-2604

	Electronic Mail: francis at monod.biol.mcgill.ca

YEAST/bionet.molbio.yeast charter:

1)  to provide a forum for the exchange and diffusion of information 
    concerning yeast people, meetings, symposia, workshops, and positions 
    in laboratories (fellowships).

2)  to provide a forum for discussions of scientific nature,
    queries about strains, plasmids, vectors, nomenclature and yeast 
    genome project news.
     
3)  An "unofficial" platform for discussions on matters dealing with the
    different Yeast Genome Projects in order to facilitate International
    cooperation between the different participating countries and the common
    use of shared databases, and software.

I see YEAST/bionet.molbio.yeast as a facilitator of discussions between 
the different members of the yeast community, that is Saccharomyces 
cerevisiae, Schizosaccharomyces pombe and other species, atlthough 
there will be emphasis with the molecular biology and genetics of 
the two first mentioned.  

I propose to put this group in the bionet.molbio domain of Usenet because 
of the emphisis of molecular biology and genetics in this group.  
YEAST is a simple and obvious name for the BIOSCI list name.

Voting is now open on YEAST/bionet.molbio.yeast and will run through
24:00 hrs Pacific Time on 7 April 1993.  Please send your vote to
either of the following addresses:

biovote at net.bio.net                   U.S.A.          Internet/BITNET

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 YEAST

if you favor creation of the newsgroup or

NO on YEAST

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 post this note to the current yeast mailing list.

				Sincerely,

				Dave Kristofferson
				BIOSCI/bionet Manager
