(1) Non isotopic sequencing:

Hi, I am interested in non-isotopic sequencing (prob. usb/dix products).
Anyone can share their experiences with me.

(2) Comment regarding patient request...

From:         "Stephen Karp (AJHG)" <karp@MEDCOR.MCGILL.CA>
Subject:      Re: BIOT: 3 messages...
I would like to state that the 2nd of these messages is not appropriate for
this list. There are many other places on the net where patients ask such
questions. I feel sorry for this gentleman, but if such patient requests
invade this list then they will overwhelm what is a useful and interesting
about this list. I suggest that such patient questions should be rejected from
this list.

(3) Editors comment on the preceding message...

I forwarded the original message for help on neurofibrosarcoma/p53
and RAS to HUM-MOLGEN because I thought it at least partially appropriate
for the BIOT section; it seemed to be a rational request for information
on clinical trials for the disease, as well as for information about p53
and RAS.

I agree with Stephen Karp's sentiment, but at present I (and
other HUM-MOLGEN editors I have consulted) feel each message needs
to be assessed individually for relevance to HUM-MOLGEN, and
posted or returned to the sender accordingly.
