MESSAGE TO THOSE INTERESTED IN 

LOCUS SPECIFIC MUTATION DATABASES



1.We now have a Web site to service the interests of this organisation:-

         http://ariel.ucs.unimelb.edu.au:80/~cotton/mut_database.htm

This gives the history of the initiative and some of the points discussed so
far as well as those relevant people to contact.


Shortly, by the end of August some proposals to be discussed and hopefully
ratified at the October meeting (see below), will be posted by working group
chairs and others with potentially useful ideas in the context of locus
specific mutation databases and central mutation databases and related
issues.  Comments on these can be sent to the relevant chair or proponent or
on the members of the "Mutation" electronic mailing list (see below).



2.  "Mutation" electronic mailing list.  To facilitate communication between
those interested in any aspect of mutations we have initiated a "biosci"
site. 

To subscribe to this list send an email message to the following address:

                     biosci-server at net.bio.net


with no subject but with  : 

                          subscribe mutation    

in the body of the email message, you will then automatically recieve
relevant information on what to do next, and then will then automatically
receive messages posted by any other subscriber.


3. Mutation Database Meeting.  29th October, 1.00-9.00p.m., San Francisco.
This meeting is likely to be the inaugural meeting of the Mutation Database
Association.  This initiative has been sponsored by HUGO and an information
sheet and registration form from Dr. Liz Evans appear on the Web site.
