Each of these commands should be sent as the sole information in

Topics is a unique feature of HUM-MOLGEN which allows subscribers to
choose the types of messages they receive. Until they choose to use this
feature, all subsciribers automatically receive all messages distributed
You can choose TOPICS to receive by sending a message containing
"SET HUM-MOLGEN TOPICS: xxxx" to the address LISTSERV@NIC.SURFNET.NL (not to
HUM-MOLGEN itself). "xxxx" is a list of the topics you wish to receive,
such as BIOT COMP ANNO etc. If you want to "switch off" a TOPIC, use a
minus sign in the message, eg : -BIOT etc.
C: SENDING MESSAGES TO THE LIST
This is the simple part. To send a message which you wish to send out to all
3500+ subscribers to HUM-MOLGEN, just send it to "HUM-MOLGEN@nic.surfnet.nl.
It will be reveiwed by our editors and, if appropriate, distributed to the
subscribers. About 95% of all messages received are distributed. We do
however edit out the occasional requests from students wishing subscribers
to do their homework for them as well as purely commercial messages.
HUM-MOLGEN'S editors assume that all requests which might lead to the
exchange of identifiable human tissue samples or the identities of research
subjects will be made only by individuals particpating in projects which
have been subject to appropriate institutional internal review procedures.
Any subscriber violating this requirement will be removed from the list.
