REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

Proposal to create sci.bio.microbiology, unmoderated.


CHARTER

For broad discussion of microbiology, including organismic studies
(ecology, biodiversity, bioremediation, classical genetics, and
other types of applied microbiology) and systematics.  This newsgroup
serves also as a place where lay readers can ask biologists their
questions about yeast, fungi, and bacteria, as well as health and
environmental issues having to do with these and other microscopic
organisms.  This group complements the more technically oriented
newsgroup bionet.microbiology.


JUSTIFICATION

Sci.bio.microbiology was originally discussed in sci.bio earlier
this year, but was preempted by a proposal for bionet.microbiology.
During the discussion of that newsgroup, however, there emerged a
significant difference of opinion regarding the purpose of the
newsgroup, and it seems probable that there is both sufficient
interest and non-overlap to support two microbiology newsgroups.
In addition, bionet.microbiology has a mailing list attached, but
suffers from low propagation throughout Usenet (as do most of the
bionet.* newsgroups):  current complaints about the low propagation
of bionet.microbiology suggest that the mailing list will gain many 
subscribers, and much traffic as well.  Thus, it is to the benefit
of everyone that there be a second newsgroup with high propagation
to absorb some of the traffic that would otherwise clog the
mailboxes of e-mail readers of bionet.microbiology.


Please direct comments to news.groups.
