IMPORTANT - What to do if new bionet USENET groups do not appear at
^^^^^^^^^   your site.

As automatic creation of new USENET newsgroups becomes less common at
most sites, users may have to check with their local news
administrators periodically to ensure that they are receiving a
complete set of bionet USENET newsgroups.  The "bionet Checkgroups
Message" is a BIOSCI WWW page option under the BIOSCI documentation
section.  News administrators should regularly use this checkgroups
script, e.g., once a month, to ensure that the latest bionet USENET
newsgroups are available on their news system.  The checkgroups
message is automatically posted to the "control" newsgroup on the
first of each month, so your news administrator should be alerted
automatically by e-mail if bionet groups are missing at your site.
Nonetheless they will still have to read and take manual action on the
output of this e-mail if automatic newsgroup creation is disabled
locally.

In summary, if you can't find new bionet newsgroups in your
newsreader, please call this checkgroups feature to the attention of
your news administrator.  Please also check the BIOSCI FAQ for
instructions on solving other common news propagation problems.


The following new newsgroups were created last month.  Please check
the BIOSCI info sheet in a subsequent posting for details:

                               bioluminescence

The following new protype newsgroups were created last month.  Please

info sheet for details:

  No new prototype groups created this month.
