Dear Tox Fans,
Welcome to Channel T on the Internet!
I would like to thank all of those who voted for the creation of this news
group (259 yes votes and 1 no vote).
This news group is open for postings by anyone with a question or comment
that is related to toxicology. Those of you in the Americas and Pacific Rim
can post your questions or comments by e-mail to toxicol at net.bio.net. Those
of you in Europe, Africa, and Central Asia should send e-mail posts to
toxicol at daresbury.ac.uk.
TOXICOLOGY News Group Charter:
The TOXICOLOGY forum is a BIOSCI/bionet news group created for the purpose
of rapid information exchange between toxicologists and other researchers.
Appropriate topics for this forum include any kind of information that is
relevant to toxicology.
The toxicology news group will provide :
- a forum for the discussion of ideas, problems, and recent developments
in toxicological research.
- a means for obtaining research protocols, strains, molecular and chemical
- a means of developing collaborations between labs.
- a bulletin board for any announcements concerning meetings,
congresses, new informational databases, job offers, etc., related to the
discipline of toxicology.
How do you access this and other news groups? There are several ways. The
best way is if your institution's computer system subscribes to Usenet news
and supports a news reading program. Most university and government systems
provide these news services.
If your institution does not have Usenet news you can read news at other
institutions via the Internet with "browsers" such as the Mosaic, Netscape,
or Gopher programs. You can also obtain news by e-mail. The latter method
is disfavored because it increases the work load on the BIOSCI system and
because you will get lots of "junk" e-mail. Reading news by the former
methods allows you to screen news contents and to examine only what
interests you. For more detailed information see the previous posting from
Dave Kristofferson of BIOSCI/bionet.
If you need help getting started with news reading, contact your
institution's computer system administrator or talk to your local computer
guru. Help and additional information regarding BIOSCI/bionet news can be
obtained by sending an e-mail message to biosci-help at net.bio.net, by world
wide web at http://www.net.bio.net, or by gopher at net.bio.net.
Reading bionet news and interacting in the toxicology forum is both
rewarding and easy. I hope that all investigators and students with an
interest in toxicology will participate.
