**** How to cancel a BIOSCI e-mail subscription ****
If you want to cancel your e-mail subscription to this group,
PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR UNSUBSCRIBE REQUEST TO THE NEWSGROUP ADDRESS
(NOR REPLY TO A MESSAGE POSTED TO THE NEWSGROUP)!!!
This would send your request to all of the readers of the newsgroup,
but it might still not be seen by the BIOSCI staff - thus you would
annoy many people and possibly not accomplish your goal anyway.
BIOSCI newsgroup instructions are available on the World Wide Web at
If you need personal assistance, a BIOSCI staff member can be
contacted at either of the following addresses. Please contact the
address designated for your location.
Support Address Location
biosci at daresbury.ac.uk Europe, Africa, and Central Asia
biosci-help at net.bio.net Americas and the Pacific Rim
**** SEARCHING BIOSCI ARCHIVES ****
The easiest way to search the BIOSCI archives is to use Mosaic or
another World Wide Web browser and connect to the BIOSCI WWW home page
at URL http://www.bio.net/.
We maintain three indexes which are searchable: (1) an index of all
BIOSCI postings; (2) an index of individual journal article references
from the Table of Contents postings on the BIO-JOURNALS newsgroup; and
(3) an index of BIOSCI users including regular mail and e-mail
addresses, phone/FAX numbers, research interests, and newsgroup
E-mail users can search the BIOSCI archives by using our waismail
e-mail server. For instructions send the message
to waismail at net.bio.net. Leave the Subject: line blank (anything
entered on the Subject: line is ignored).
**** BIOSCI FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ) SHEET ****
New users of BIOSCI/bionet may want to read the "Frequently Asked
Questions" or "FAQ" sheet for BIOSCI. The FAQ provides details on how
to participate in these forums and fix problems that you might
encounter in using the newsgroups. The FAQ and other BIOSCI
documentation is available through our WWW home page at URL
The FAQ is also posted on the first of each month to the newsgroup
BIONEWS/bionet.announce immediately following the posting of the
BIOSCI information sheet.
**** BIOSCI USER ADDRESS DIRECTORY ****
Please take this opportunity to add your name and address information
to the BIOSCI User Address Database if you have not already done so.
You can fill out the address form directly through our Web page at URL
The address database is reindexed nightly for WWW access (the URL is
http://www.bio.net/). If you are not directly on the Internet but can
reach it by e-mail, please use our waismail server (send the word
"help" to waismail at net.bio.net to get instructions; any text on the
Subject: line of your message will be ignored, so put the help command
in the body of the mail message.).
MAKING SURE THAT YOUR INFORMATION IS CURRENT
This notice will be mailed bimonthly to each newsgroup. You should
check your database entry from time-to-time to see if your address
information is still up-to-date.
