In an attempt to combat increasing noise and junk mail on the
Internet, the CHLAMYDOMONAS/bionet.chlamydomonas newsgroup has been
converted to a moderated forum. The moderator is Elizabeth Harris.
The revised newsgroup charter follows.

Newsgroup charter: To facilitate communication among biologists
working on, or interested in, any aspects of the biology of the green
alga Chlamydomonas and related genera.
A series of five international conferences beginning in 1983 and a paper
newsletter that now reaches more than 600 subscribers have fostered a sense
of identity and a spirit of cooperation among the Chlamydomonas community.
As use of electronic communication services has increased, interest has
grown in establishing a computer network by which information can be
rapidly exchanged and announcements made simultaneously to the entire
community. A bionet.chlamydomonas group will serve this function.
Communications on all aspects of Chlamydomonas biology will be considered
appropriate for this forum, as will discussion of other algae used as
experimental systems, including but not limited to Chlorella, Dunaliella,
Euglena, Scenedesmus, Tetraselmis, and Volvox. Requests for technical
information, advertisement of postdoctoral fellowships and other employment
opportunities, and announcements of meetings may be posted. Reports on
progress made in transformation technology and molecular mapping will be
especially welcome. The Chlamydomonas Genetics Center at Duke University
will post periodic listings of current journal articles pertinent to
Chlamydomonas and notifications of new files available on the Chlamydomonas
database and web pages. Participation and sharing of information by the entire
community is strongly encouraged.
Mass-posted commercial messages, chain letters, and similar postings not
germane to research on Chlamydomonas or other algae will be deleted without
comment. 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.
