Caenorhabditis Genetic Map and Nomenclature E-Mailing List

Jonathan Hodgkin, Mary O'Callaghan

(MRC-LMB, Cambridge, England)

Most of the points covered in the accompanying 'Nomenclature Guidelines -- New Recommendations' contribution were circulated by e-mail before the June 1993 meeting, to principal investigators with e-mail addresses, for their comments and reactions. This procedure appeared to be efficient and helpful. We wish to expand our e-mailing list for nomenclature issues, and for recommended methods of data submission. For this reason, we sent a message in August 1993 inviting other potentially interested parties to join this list, using the e-mail addresses from the 1993 WBG Subscriber Directory. We repeat this message below, for the benefit of readers who have e-mail access but did not receive our invitation. If you are interested, send us an e-mail message asking to be added to the list.

From cgc@mrc-lmb.cam.ac.uk

Dear WBG subscriber

At present, CGC e-mail messages about methods of data submission, nomenclatorial issues and so on, are sent to all investigators with assigned lab codes (strain and allele designations) and known e-mail addresses. We would like to extend this mailing list to other interested parties who can be reached by e-mail. If you wish to be included on this expanded e-mailing list, please reply to this message, and you will be added to the list. Investigators already on the list need take no action.

Regardless of whether you join the list, you will still be able to take note of any significant new recommendations, because these will be duly announced in issues of the Worm

Yours sincerely,

Jonathan Hodgkin
