About bio
English (USA)

[Last updated on: Thu Sep 26 14:18:12 CDT 2002]

The purpose of the list is to increase communications
amongst the growing group of people working on Biology in MCS.

This unmoderated list is open to postings that would interest
individuals working on MCS biology projects. Examples include
basic-learning questions about biology, computational biology, and
mathematics as well as discussion of research level questions.
Announcements of seminars or even informal gatherings are welcome.

If in doubt, post. We can refine the charter over time. For now, the
goal is to increase interactions. Even notes simply saying, "join us
for coffee in 10 minutes" or "impromptu meeting in 261 in 5 minutes"
are welcome/encouraged.

The subscription policy is "open." This means anyone can subscribe
to the list but can not subscribe others. Please let others know
about the list. The list will be archived.

Ed Frank (efrank@mcs) and Elizabeth Marland (marland@mcs) are the list
