    Dear subscribers,

    Now that the number of subscribers has grown to 23, I thought
    I could mention about another service, namely Life Science
    Research Server (LifeSci) running on the mainframe computer
    at Technion. Its purpose is to enhance communication among
    people in the life related fields (medicine, physiology,
    psychology etc.). For a list of commands you should send
    HELP LIST command to RPRLSCI@TECHNION. Commands are accepted
    via MAIL (command written on a first line on the mail) or
    interactive MESSAGE. HELP NEWUSER command will send a file
    introducing how to register.

    Subscribers of LifeSci can create topics according to their
    wishes, they can search the addresses of subscribers in
    different topics and submit text to any topic they have
    subscribed to. This server can work as an additional forum
    besides different distribution lists that exist in EARN/
    BITNET. I have created there topics for fields of SUGARS
    (Glycoproteins, Glycolipids and proteoglycans) and EXTRA-
    CELLULAR MATRIX. Unfortunately, the action has so far been
    quite dead, so I'm trying to spread the information of
    these topics more widely to the researchers in these fields.
