I am pleased to announce the establishment of the Mouse and Rat Research
Home Page on the World Wide Web.  This site centralizes the numerous
internet resources directly relevant to biomedical researchers using mice
or rats in their work.  You may reach it at:

or by selecting the link at the bottom of this message if you are using
a web-aware mail browser.

In conjunction with this page, the "rodent-research" e-mail list has
been established.  The following is quoted from the "info" file for the
mail list:

    This list is for announcements, questions, and discussion related
    to the use of rodents in biomedical research.  You can expect
    messages on topics as diverse as husbandry, surgical anesthesia
    methods, embryonic stem cell culture, or NIH animal use guidelines.
    Announcements of particular interest to researchers using rodents
    are also appropriate to this list, although commercial advertisers
    are encouraged to use restraint both with respect to length and
    frequency of posts.  This list exists primarily as a means for
    biomedical researchers to discuss common problems and develop
    conclusions drawn from a large base of experience.

You can join rodent-research by sending an e-mail message to:

    majordomo at

with a single line of message text:

    subscribe rodent-research

All researchers using mice or rats are welcome to use these new services.
