Welcome to ththe zebrafish newsgroup, intended primarily to be a forum 
for folks interested the scientific research of Danio rerio, commonly 
known to aquarium enthusiasts as zebrafish or zebra danio.  The 
establishment of this newgroup is in part a response to a request by 
attendies at a Cold  Spring Harbor Symposium last April for increased 
Internet interaction. 

This newsgroup is unmoderated; please use it any way you like; for asking 
questions, asking for assistance or for specific reagents (libraries, 
clones, antibodies, etc.), posting information regarding job openings or 
seekings, posting information regarding events, or in any other manner 
that seems appropriate.

Also, for those "outside" the "community" that might have attended the 
Cold Spring Harbor community, please use "us" as a resourse for molecular 
gentic or cell biology information that might be of interest in a general 
fishy context.

I am currently serving as "discussion leader" for this group, along with 
Una Smith; the unmoderated nature of the group means that my job is 
little more than to help out if I can.  Please feel free to contact me 
directly if I can be of any assistance.  


Also please note that the community has established two WWW sites that 
contain considerable information and access to information relevant to 
the community.  One site is at the University of Oregon, and provides 
access to text of The Zebrafish Book (a techniques mannual) and The 
Zebrafish Science Monitor (a periodical of the community), as well as 
various growing data bases (mutant stocks, genetic map data, available 
antibodies, etc).  The Oregon site can be accessed at:


The second site is currently in my lab at University of South Carolina, 
and primarily supplies links to sites I find of use to the zebrafish 
community.  More information is available regarding this newsgroup, 
including the original proposal and a copy of the announcement that 
includes information on how to suscribe to the e-mail version of the 
newsgroup.  The South Carolina server can be accessed at:


Plans are to develop image archives and to expand the additional data bases.

We hope you find the newsgroup useful; good luck!
