Thursday 9 January 1992
A LISTSERV forum for anyone who is using RAPD (Randomly Amplified Polymorphic
DNA, Williams et al., 1990, Nucl. Acids Res. 18:6531-6535) has been set up on
the VM at Brigham Young University.
The RAPD-L on the LISTSERV at BYU is set up as a public forum
with no moderation. When you send a message to RAPD-L at BYUVM it
will be distributed to all of the other subscribers. I am not a
computer jockey, but if you have problems, let me know and I will
call the people who are for help.
So far as I am concerned, information and questions on any use of
RAPD is appropriate for this forum. Please let others know about
it. The information below should be sufficient to allow you to
add or remove names from the subscriber list.
To subscribe send "SUB RAPD-L userid" to LISTSERV at BYUVM. Please
note that this command must NOT be sent to the list address
(RAPD-L at BYUVM) but to the LISTSERV address (LISTSERV at BYUVM).
You may leave the list by sending a "SIGNOFF RAPD-L" command to
LISTSERV at BYUVM.
The amount of acknowledgement you wish to receive from this list
upon completion of a mailing operation can be changed by means of
a "SET RAPD-L option" command, where "option" may be either "ACK"
(mail acknowledgement), "MSGACK" (interactive messages only) or
You can obtain a list of the available archive files by sending
an "INDEX RAPD-L" command to LISTSERV at BYUVM. These files can be
retrieved by means of a "GET RAPD-L filetype" command, or by
using the database search facilities of LISTSERV. Send an "INFO
DATABASE" command for more information on the latter.
It is possible to determine who is signed up to the list by using
the "REVIEW" command, which returns the network address and name
of all the subscribers (unless REVIEW is set to Editor). If you
do not wish your name to be available to others, just issue a
"SET RAPD-L CONCEAL" command.
