The final BIOSCI seminar tour this year (ten talks) will be in the
Southeastern U.S. and will start right after the Thanksgiving weekend.
Many of the talks will be open to the public but some are restricted
to just the people at the institution where the talk is being given.
The schedule for the talks is below.

Please note that I will be reading e-mail while on the road, but
mainly in the evenings after a sometimes long drive between sites.
This means that BIOSCI support services will be delayed much more than
usual.  Dave Mack will be here monitoring mail to
biosci-help at for systems emergencies only.  Other questions
will be answered as time permits.  If you haven't yet learned how to
use our e-mail server, haven't looked at the BIOSCI FAQ, etc., now
would be a good time to start 8-)!!

The seminar will cover the use of facilities on the Internet and
connected networks for communicating with biologists worldwide
including e-mail, USENET electronic newsgroups, WAIS, WAISMAIL,
Gopher, and Mosaic/WWW.  The network, especially USENET newsgroups,
offers access to expertise in experimental methods and ideas in a
variety of research specialties as well as to forums for employment
opportunities, current bibliographic information, funding agency
announcements, and other information.
