USENET newsgroup name:  bionet.molbio.evolution

Status:                 Moderated

One line Description:   Discussions about research in molecular
evolution.

Moderation address:     mol-evol-moderator at net.bio.net
(bionet-molbio-evolution at net.bio.net is an alias for
mol-evol-moderator at net.bio.net)

Co-moderators:          Jerry Learn and James McInerney

Mailing list name:      MOLECULAR-EVOLUTION

E-mail addresses:       mol-evol at net.bio.net mol-evol at daresbury.ac.uk

Newsgroup charter:    Bionet.molbio.evolution is a forum for scientific
discussions and a source of information for the community of scientists
interested in the study of the processes of how DNA, RNA, proteins and 
organisms have evolved at a molecular level.

Functions of the newsgroup:

The newsgroup will facilitate rapid communication among research
scientists,
educators and other individuals interested in the study of molecular
evolution.
This includes, but is not limited to discussions of molecular
phylogenies, 
methods of analysis, pointers towards sources of information, mechanisms
of 
molecular evolution and software discussions.

Finally, the newsgroup will serve as a bulletin board for announcements
of
meetings, conferences, job opportunities, and funding sources of
interest to
scientists studying molecular evolution.

Subscribers are welcome from universities or any academic institutions,
government agencies, hospitals and other medical institutions, and
industrial or commercial organizations. Contributions within the 
functions outlined above are encouraged.

Moderation Policy:

Mass-posted commercial messages, chain letters, and similar postings not
germane to molecular evolution will be deleted without comment. The 
newsgroup will not be used to facilitate discussions of a creationist
nature.  
Inappropriate messages posted in good faith will be returned to the
sender.  
Messages not strictly within the charter but likely to be of interest to
many
subscribers will be accepted. Appropriate messages are requests 
for information, announcements, or point-and-counterpoint on 
scientific issues, given and taken in a collegial spirit.  Messages 
with obscenities, or messages that rely heavily on _ad hominem_ 
arguments, may be rejected.
