Well for what it's worth I really haven't seen any new posts as to title
submissions in bionet.immunology either. Interesting thing is that there
was great participation in the non-JC topic of self/nonself recognition
while the IL-12 function in the immune system discussion was less
appealing. So there are plenty of people that are interested however maybe
the topic's title is important.
I have learnt a lot from the discussions in immunology and I hope that we
can get enough people interested in it.
My suggestion is to have people submit a particular title for a journal
that they wanna discuss and the discussion leader ( that being Don?) will
assign the article based on the subject with most interest to people.
Maybe the cure for the resurrection of bionet.immunology JC is persistance.
