Proposal to establish PEPTIDES/bionet.molecules.peptides
Proposed USENET name:              bionet.molecules.peptides
Proposed mailing list name:        PEPTIDES
Proposed e-mail addresses:         peptides at
                                   peptides at
Proposed Discussion leaders:       George Barany

Proposed charter:
The purpose of PEPTIDES is to serve as an international forum for open 
communication among peptide scientists. Topics such as peptide 
synthesis, purification, analysis, structure, design, biological 
activity, peptidomimetics and other peptide related issues may be 
discussed.  Announcements from the American Peptide Society will be 
posted here.  Other peptide societies are encouraged to post 
announcements as well.  Prospective employers of peptide scientists 
are invited to advertise in this news group.
There is currently no clear avenue for posting peptide-related 
questions.  This news group will be distinguished from 
bionet.molbio.proteins in that it will focus on the chemistry and 
biological aspects of peptides.
This news group was created with the support of the American Peptide 
Society by the following committe:  Ruth Hogue Angeletti, George 
Barany, Michael S. Breslav, Patricia Winter Cash, S. Russ Lehrman, 
and Janis Dillaha Young.  All peptide scientists are encouraged to 
utilize this news group.
