What is your general impression of HUM-MOLGEN ?
(Answers to first question of HUM-MOLGEN survey)
Love it. This is a true free exchange of academic ideas among those most interested. The communication speeds up the rate of new information to the benefit of basic science researchers, service providers and recipients of genetic services.
Excellent idea, brings specialists together and will surely become a very important tool for all human geneticists.
Generally interesting. Wide-range of participants. More Table of Contents would be nice.

Good, simple and easy to handle.
very good - I have been surprised becuase I have started to use it rather than just 'play'.
Useful and informative
Good source of journal contents - pre release.
As traffic increases the noise goes up, but I am still happy to subscribe as the inormation content is still high.

I just started subscribing about 2 weeks ago. It has been extremely useful so far.

Excellent. The quality of the posts is higher than most of the listservs I have seen. The organization by TOPICS is a good concept. The set feature seems like a good idea, although I have not experimented with it.
Quite useful in it's informativeness and at times quite stimulating following some of the discussions.
It does what it planned to - it seems to fill the gap between research and clinical scientists
A quite interesting discussion group. But some topics are quite far away from my special interests.
A useful list with some interesting topics discussed. Journal previews are very good.
Is still growing. Information/discussion seem to come from only very few areas (eg. ethics, diagnosis, etc). Would be more interesting if more input from other areas.
Excellent information forum for human geneticists worldwide.
Positive, because it gives an idea about people thinking about the same topics, and gives you access to their adresses. Important for people, who are a bit isolated. This applies also to the journal previews.

Since I began a membership in this community (a couple of months ago), I feel that my daily life has become much more interesting. Moreover, if it were not for this fabulous opportunity, I would not get so much of valuable information."
It appears very useful, though I am only at the edges of the field.
improving day after day
Useful, but I'm concerned that as it gets bigger, it will be hard to scan quickly enough. It will continue to absorb more of my time, or yours!
Exiting new media (for a novice like me, at least), very useful links to clinicians, very fresh infos!
My interest is low . I only use 10% of what comes over.
It's a good service, with growing interesting facilities.

It's a very good forum for the interchange of information with other people in the field, finding useful data, etc. Of course, not everything suits me very well, but that's what you'd expect from a list like this.
However, as you can see below, I point out a couple of things which in my opinion could be relevant to other users as well.

Excellent! The volume of messages is not excessive, and I usually see something of interest. I believe that my next post doc will be hired through Hum-molgen.
It was the first conference about Human Molecular Genetics on Internet that I subscribed. I think that this conference can improve communication between clinic and resarch. It seems to me that HUM-MOLGEN is very useful. The WWW in Rostock is a very good source of information.
I find it very helpful. I like the way the topics are announced in each message-- there are some areas I am not interested in, and then I can skip the rest of the announcement. I find it a great service and I look forward to seeing a new message in my mailbox....
I almmost satisfied with this news group, and also appreciate with staffs' efforts.
Very interesting and very useful
Another good resource to help try to keep up with the ever-expanding field.
I enjoy reading the postings in general. For the most part I have been a "lurker" until now. I think the CALL portion could be especially useful.
Good, although I did not feel it is user-friendly when I firstly subscribed HUM-MOLGEN. Later on I adapted the commands for communicating with the server and I enjoy reading news everyday.
HUM-MOLGEN is very informative and keeps me aware of the latest developments and issues in bioscience. Thank you for creating HUM-MOLGEN
Excellent forum for broad range of discussion topics
VERY GOOD AND USEFULL
J. A. Witkowski
Positive - it appears to fill a useful goal.
VERY USEFUL AND INFORMATIVE
TOPICS AS ETHICS NOT FOLLOWED OUTSIDE HUM-MOLGEN
POSSIBILITY OF COLLABORATION EXCELLENT
Highly useful especially in terms of the preview of oncoming journals. Also, it is a good forum for the discussion of scientific questions, problems etc.
very interesting topics for discussion, easy to see what will be discussed in subseqent pages
Have been enormously impressed with Hum-Molgen's e-mail service. The queries are timely, relevant; the commentaries are appreciated. Please keep up the good work.
a welcome forum for exchange of ideas and dissemination of information, inquiries, etc.
It is very useful and is always read
JOHN J. MULVIHILL
Certainly keeps my mailbox full, but most of stuff is of interest. Right now, mix is great, but could get overwhelming.
Kevin S Hughes
Has provided vory useful information, especoally in letting me know of other resources.
Stephen L. Mathias
It provides a useful source of information and a way of keeping in touch with various things that are going on in the human genetics field that I might not be aware of.
Interesting, with a lot of potential.
Dr C. Mathew
More info about meetings and fewer messages from people who are too lazy or incompetent to use medline/read the literature.
Moderators dedicated, service improving. Especially useful for those with lesser Internet capability, like myself. Remember that those like me must commit a block of time to select TOPICs or respond to questionnaires. Remember the total cost of 1000 scientists times 1 hour.
It is cool means for me to obtain new knowledge.
Peter A. Covitz
My only comment is that the way you organize the messages is awkward and filled with excessive header material. This may help YOU as the editor keep the posts orderly, but it does not facilitate easy reading. I suggest consolidating the posts to more simple formats, without all the abbreviations and categorizations. We can tell whether the message is a job request or an ethics question.
