Dear all,

The 19th of September 1996 sees the official launch of the Open Molecule
Foundation (OMF). The OMF is an open, non-profit making organisation,
which intends to provide reusable, pre-competitive applets and Java
packages to be made freely available over the Internet for the bio- and
chemo- informatics communities.

Membership of the OMF is free to academics and non-profit making
organisations, 
and there is a varying scale of commitment for commercial organisations.
For further details on membership, please visit the OMF WWW site at:
