Newsgroup Transfers to BIOSCI


The Arabidopsis Newsgroup, operated since July 1990 at Michigan State University, is now a part of BIOSCI at Genbank®. To send postings to the newsgroup, mail to the most convenient site:

  • arab-gen@genbank.bio.net - United States - Internet/BITNET
  • arab-gen@irlearn.ucd.ie - Ireland - EARN/BITNET
  • arab-gen@uk.ac.daresbury - United Kingdom - JANET
  • arab-gen@bmc.uu.se - Sweden - Internet

Arabidopsis messages are also carried over USENET in the newsgroup bionet.genome.arabidopsis. USENET users can now post messages directly into the USENET newsgroup but should be sure to set the message distribution to "world" when prompted by the postnews software.

To resolve problems with the Arabidopsis newsgroup, contact the local BIOSCI node at one of the following addresses.

  • biosci@genbank.bio.net - United States - Internet/BITNET
  • biosci@irlearn.ucd.ie - Ireland - EARN/BITNET
  • biosci@uk.ac.daresbury - United Kingdom - JANET
  • biosci@bmc.uu.se - Sweden - Internet

Note that there are separate e-mail addresses for the United Kingdom and Europe. One Swedish address is given for Europe. The remaining mail addresses are on the list at genbank.bio.net.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.

Human Genome News

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
