HUM-MOLGEN is a general interest communication-list in Human
(Molecular) Genetics. The purpose of the list is to create a
world-wide communication-forum in Genetics.
Subscribers to the list are molecular biologists, geneticists,
clinicians, biology and medical students and other individuals
interested in the field of Human Genetics.
INTRODUCTION OF THE BIOTECHNOLOGY/MOLECULAR BIOLOGY TOPIC
Here is a general guide to the new BIOT section of the
HUM-MOLGEN communication list. As you know, it is possible to
SET the TOPICS feature of HUM-MOLGEN to include only articles
in your areas of interest; a brief reminder of how to do this
is given at the end of this message (HOW TO SET TOPICS, AND
HOW TO SEND MESSAGES TO SRECIFIC TOPICS)
If you send mail, please send any messages to
HUM-MOLGEN at nic.surfnet.nl. To target your message to the
biotechnology/molecular biology TOPIC, your subject header
should look like this (spaces are important):
Subject: BIOT: Subject of your message
The BIOT TOPIC covers various areas and contributions in
Biotechnology and Molecular Biology. Messages concerning
these or related relevant subjects are welcomed. As traffic
grows, BIOT will probably be divided into more than one TOPIC.
We aim to provide a useful, focused and condensed information
source for busy molecular biologists and biotechnologists. We
need your help to do this, by way of contributions (HUM-MOLGEN
is YOUR communication-list), and suggestions about the way
you'd like to see this TOPIC develop.
Areas of BIOTechnology/molecular biology interests include
(but suggestions for others are welcome):
-new techniques and methods
-improvements of old methods
-finding and offering of information
-finding and offering of reagents
-finding and offering of collaborations
-finding and offering of funds
-commercialization of human genetics research
-interaction between government, research community and
-patenting and legal issues
-Job, carreer and bussiness opportunities
o- Research news
o- Conference reports
o- Book reviews and abstracts of new developments
Meeting announcements, journal contents pages and ethical
issues are covered in other TOPICS of HUM-MOLGEN, but if
especially relevant they may also be included here.
As well as contributions from subscribers, we will cross post
or summarize relevant material from some of the USENET News-
groups, and from other sources on the Internet.
Our aim is to provide a consolidated, personalized information
source that will bring the best bits of the information super-
highway into your lab, office or home!
