1 | INTERNET FORUM HUM-MOLGEN LOGS FOUR THOUSAND SUBSCRIBERS,
    ANNOUNCES MIRROR SITE AT ROCKEFELLER UNIVERSITY (press release)

The Human Molecular Genetics Network is proud to announce that HUM-MOLGEN, its electronic mailing list, has just added its four thousandth subscriber. This electronic list, which is the primary worldwide means forelectronic exchange of information among researchers and others interested in human molecular genetics, now has subscribers from 64 different countries and more than 500 academic, commercial and government institutions.

In addition, HUM-MOLGEN's world wide web site will now be more easily accessible by North and South American users through the opening of a mirror site at the Sun workstation computer of the Rockefeller University in New York City. HUM-MOLGEN's current site hosted by the University of Rostock Germany has also been upgraded.

The Human Molecular Genetics Network, which was founded by Dr. Arthur Bergen of the Netherlands Ophthalmic Research Institute in the Netherlands and Frank S. Zollmann of Rostock University two years ago, has experienced explosive growth in its mailing list, which at this time last year had 1700 subscribers. In addition, the world wide web site, which, among other achievements, is now the foremost source in the world for genetics-related job listings and the tables of contents of genetics journals, is presently hosting over 1,000 visitors a day. The network is run by a voluntary consortium of editors in the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Singapore, and the United States.

"The truly amazing thing about HUM-MOLGEN," says Dr. Bergen, "is that a researcher or doctor anywhere in the world can virtually instantly ask for a consultation from thousands of possible sources. Just last week, we had a doctor from Belgium post an inquiry about the genetics of a rare disease and within a day we had responses from the U.S., Great Britain and Israel. Another inquiry from Brazil was responded to from Poland. And because most of our responses don't actually get posted to the entire mailing list, those are only the responses we know about."

HUM-MOLGEN counts many of the best known researchers in the world among its subscribers. One of them, Dr. Victor McKusick of Johns Hopkins University and editor of Mendelian Inheritance in Man recently said of HUM-MOLGEN, "It
is terrific, a very valuable service"

2 | BIOINFORMATICS SKILLS SPECIAL NEXT WAVE ISSUE

WWW:    http://www.nextwave.org
E-mail: WYEE@aaas.org

Bioinformatics is arguably the "next big thing" to hit biology and computer science. The Next Wave site (www.nextwave.org) is following up last year's New Niche (on alternative careers) with specific information on the skills you need to be successful in this area. We ook at the skills that are in highest demand, career directions, and the future of this emerging field.

--- What Hiring Managers Want: Bioinformatics group leaders at Bayer, Millenium, TIGR, and Wyeth-Ayerst Research discuss the skills they value most.
--- Hot Skill Sets: Eight people with diverse industry and academia backgrounds discuss which skills they've needed most and how they acquired them. Career tips from bioinformatics researchers at SmithKline Beecham, Millenium Pharmaceuticals, Mercator Genetics, the Keck Center for Computational Biology, and more.
--- Past, Present, and Future: An overview on the field from a Canadian scientist and start-up company consultant.
--- Virtual Education: Bioinformatics skill-building classes and tools accessible on and off the Web.
--- What's Next: Predictions for the post-genomic era. Experts offer their educated guesses.

The URL for Science's Next Wave is www.nextwave.org. We encourage you and your peers and colleagues to visit the Next Wave site. If you would not like to receive e-mail notices about future Next Wave features which present career information for scientists, please let us know.

5 | updated version of the Hardin Meta Directory web page for Oncology

WWW:    http://www.arcade.uiowa.edu/hardin-www/md-oncol.html
E-mail: eric-rumsey@uiowa.edu

This is to announce an updated version of the Hardin Meta Directory web page for Oncology. All links have been checked to confirm connection and new links have been added, including the following (both of which are *major* new resources):

-Guide to Internet Resources for Cancer, Simon Cotterill, Univ Newcastle, UK

-MedMark - Oncology, I Shin, MedMark Team, Korea . [frames version]

A *new and important feature* for Hardin MD is that we are now using a link checker to check the connection rate for the lists that are included. Generally the lists with better connection rates are toward the top of their size category.

Of course, using our link checker, the links on our own pages have superlative connection rates, generally above 98%.

The URL for the Hardin Meta Directory Oncology page is - http://www.arcade.uiowa.edu/hardin-www/md-oncol.html

Please check it out and post this message to appropriate listservs.
