Proposal for the establishment of bionet.molbio.hiv :-)

I would like to propose the establishment of a newsgroup under bionet.molbio
for the discussion and information sharing of topics concerning the research on
the Human Immunodeficiency Viruses, mainly dealing with concepts of molecular
biology. Considering the enormous amount of research going on in this field i
think that the newsgroup would be useful and receiwe many postings.

I would like to point out that this newsgroup should really deal only with
matters of molecular biology rather than clinical questions. There are other
forums better suited for the exchange of clinical information, and i'm afraid
that those questions would flood the group and blur the big picture.

What i am really thinking of is a way of distributing information on questions
such as different HIV-recombinant constructions, the availability of strains,
info on PCR-primers and amplification procedures and so on.

The group could also function as a discussion forum for theoretical questions
dealing both with the function of the HIV virus and ideas on how it could be
stopped. All HIV researchers are aware of the problems inwolved and would
certainly appreciate comments from the rest of the molbio reseach community.

Comments about this proposal and the organisation of bionet.molbio.hiv are
appreciated and should be replied to the group where this posting appears NOT

NOTE!   Voting period ends at 6 December 1991!

The usenet newsgroups are international electronic discussion
forums for day to day communication among computer users. The
usenet lists are divided into interest groups of which one is the
BIONET/BIOSCI utility. Bionet consists of many groups covering
biologic subjects, mostly of a molecular biologic point of view.
There are goups for employment exchange and laboratory cookbook
topics etc. Bionet is a very fast and convenient way of exchanging
information and get fast answears on everyday lab problems. BIONET
is best reached by using NEWS-reading software that is distributed
as shareware and awailabel for most computer platforms (UNIX, VMS,
IBM etc.)

There has been a proposal for the establishment of a new group on
BIONET, bionet.molbio.hiv which is up for vote until 6 December
1991. The purpose of this group would be to provide a fast way for
the large community of HIV researchers to exchange information.
You can influence the establishment of the group by following the
above voting procedure at your own computer, provided it is
connected to international networks. If you dont have NEWS-
reading software at your institute, consult your system manager to
set it up.

         A plus: Most NEWS-readers are very easy to use!
