BIOSCI Bionet Newsgroups:

BIOSCI is a set of electronic communication forums - the bionet USENET newsgroups and parallel e-mail lists - used by biological scientists worldwide. No fees are charged for the service. The U.S. BIOSCI site is supported by advertising raised through this Web site since the end of its grant from NSF, DOE, and NIH. The U.K. BIOSCI node is supported by the Daresbury Laboratory.

The U.S. BIOSCI node looking for additional sponsors to help continue its work. Sponsors will be able to have their advertisement displayed in any of numerous locations on our Web pages, have a hyperlink to their home page, and gain other advertising exposure through the BIOSCI documentation and BIOSCI presentations at scientific meetings. Please contact biosci-help@net.bio.net biosci-help@net.bio.net for details on how your organization can help BIOSCI continue its service to the biology community.

BIOSCI promotes communication between professionals in the biological sciences. All postings to the newsgroups should be made in that spirit. While the general public may "listen in" to the discussions, these newsgroups are intended primarily for communications between researchers. There are other forums on Usenet such as sci.bio.misc for the asking and answering of biological questions from lay persons.

For more information, please contact BIOSCI directly through their web page, which is the source of the above information.

For more information about newsgroups in general, look at the "What is USENET?" page from DejaNews, a WWW-based USENET news utility and archive.
