It's been a busy month!

Many software upgrades and fixes at the BIOSCI node at

WAIS server there now runs Don Gilbert's modification of WAIS which
supports Boolean and other queries.

Four new BIOSCI newsgroups have been created:

PROTISTA/bionet.protista: research discussions on ciliates and other

PARASITOLOGY/bionet.parasitology: research discussions in parasitology

BIOPHYSICS/bionet.biophysics: Discussion of issues related to the
                              science and profession of biophysics

CYTONET/bionet.cellbiol.cytonet: Discussions about research on the
                                 cytoskeleton, plasma membrane, and
                                 cell wall

Please see the BIOSCI info sheet in a following message for details.

Three new BIOSCI prototype newsgroups have been established:

biocan at      An unmoderated forum established by the
                          Canadian Federation of Biological Societies
                          (CFBS) to serve as a multidisciplinary forum
                          for the exchange of information within the
                          Canadian biological and biomedical science

grasses at     Scientific discussions/questions regarding
                          grasses, especially cereal, forage, and turf

nmr-str at     A forum for all those interested in studying
                          three dimensional structure of
                          macromolecules using Nuclear Magnetic
                          Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR).

The pep-libs at prototype newsgroup was discontinued after
failing to pass a vote of the readership.

Please see the section on prototype newsgroups near
the ends of the BIOSCI information sheet for details.
