Newsgroup character:    Bionet.molbio.evolution is a forum for scientific
discussions and a source of information for the community of biologists
interested in the study of the processes of how genes and proteins have evolved.

Functions of the newsgroup:

The newsgroup will facilitate rapid communication among research scientists,
educators and other individuals interested in the study of molecular evolution.

Finally, the newsgroup will serve as a bulletin board for announcements of
meetings, conferences, job opportunities, and funding sources of interest to
biologists 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
