Dear scientists,

The new BIOSCI/Bionet newsgroup ARTHROPOD is available now
for discussion of the largest phylum of animals including
insects, arachnids, crustaceans, and others. Topics of
interest include Evolution, Genomics, and disease Vector arthropods.
  List-mail: arthropod @ net.bio.net
  Subscribe: http://www.bio.net/biomail/listinfo/arthropod
  Usenet and RSS news feeds are also available

Early posts include upcoming meetings of interest, and new
Arthropod EST gene data. EST results include arachnid tick
Ixodes, crustacean waterflea Daphnia, insects Bombyx silk moth,
Drosophila fruitfly, Nasonia wasp and Acyrthosiphon aphid

- Which species has official gene models that missed over 50%
of EST assemblies?

- Which species has 3 times more ESTs split between scaffolds, and
a perhaps corresponding missed coding exon per gene model, on average?

You can get answers to these questions on the bionet.Arthropod news group,
just ask.
