1 | The Human Transcript Map

| WWW: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/SCIENCE96/

                             The Human Transcript Map 

is available at the World Wide Web site:
The map is discussed in this week's Genome issue of the journal Science 
(A Gene Map of the Human Genome). 


2 | Rare Genetic Diseases In Children

| WWW: http://mcrcr4.med.nyu.edu/~murphp01/homenew.htm
| E-mail: pmurf@ix.netcom.com

"Rare Genetic Diseases In Children: An Internet Resource Gateway" is a
comprehensive directory of resources
and Message Board system for families. Hosted by NYU Medical Center, the
Resource Directory links to web
sites with information on disabilities, financial matters, education,
specific disease Home Pages, medical concerns,
reference information and support. A Message Board, the "Gateway Kiosk" has
five Topic Boards, including
"Life-Link Search" enabling parents to locate others with similar
experiences. Professionals, too, are encouraged
to visit the Kiosk Board and respond to the many inquiries on various
diseases now posted.

| WWW: http://www.apopnet.com
| E-mail: webmaster@apopnet.com

APOPTOSIS Online is a free information and communication service provided by
ApopNet for all members of the
life science community. The web site features an online discussion forum, a
resume/position depository, and a
content-based reference library devoted to apoptosis-related information.
You can communicate with other users,
post desired or available positions, and find information about books,
journals, grants, meetings, web sites,
methods, vendors, and review articles related to apoptosis research. Access
to APOPTOSIS Online is entirely
free, but a one-time member registration is required. 


4 | WebMedLit

| WWW: http://www.webmedlit.com
| E-mail: mrogers@netaxs.com

There is a new web resource which tracks updates to 18 medical 
journals on the web and builds topical views from the combined 
tables of contents. Topical views also feature links to related
news stories from PR Newswire.
o Abstracts are searchable.
o All links point back to the original articles or abstracts at 
  the publishers' web sites.

Nobelförsamlingen / Karolinska Institutet

Press Release October 7, 1996 

The Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institute has today decided to award 
the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for 1996 jointly to 

Peter C Doherty and Rolf M Zinkernagel 

for their discoveries concerning The Specificity of the Cell Mediated Immune

| E-mail: wyee@aaas.org

Science's Next Wave, a Web site published by American Association 
for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Science magazine, will be
presenting a forum on the changing scientific landscape in Asia.

This forum is part of our Going Public series that addresses scientific 
trends and issues of general interest to the scientific community. The
Asia forum features six prominent scientists and scientific administrators 
from Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and China, who will discuss
the reform of scientific education, the changing scientific job market in 
Asia, stimulating scientific innovation, and cultural barriers to
innovation, among other topics. The forum be accessible starting on 
Friday, October 4th.

Featured participants in the forum include:

-- Otto C.C. Lin, and C. C. Hang, engineering faculty from the 
   National University of Singapore
-- Chia-Wei Woo, president of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
-- Hiroo Imura, president of Kyoto University
-- Zhangliang Chen, vice president of Beijing University and director of a 
   national genetic engineering laboratory
-- Chunli Bai, vice president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a 
   scanning tunneling microscopy expert

Related to the forum, we will also be introducing a new group of 
young scientists as correspondents for Science's Next Wave, who will
discuss their personal experiences as research scientists in Asia and 
offer advice for making the most of research opportunities in Asia.

These scientists-correspondents for Asia include an intern in the 
MIT Japan Program, former participants in the NSF Summer Institutes in
Korea and Japan, and a North American scientist currently working for 
a prominent Japanese pharmaceutical company. Science's Next
Wave will also be providing links to related web sites for scientists 
interested in exploring training and funding opportunities in Asia.

We strongly encourage you to tell your peers and colleagues about the 
current Asia features on the Next Wave site. Both the Asia forum and
the related correspondent reports from young scientists will be accessible 
starting on Friday, October 4th. You are encouraged to direct
your comments and career questions to the forum participants and 
correspondents via the Web site over the next two months.

9 | Cancer Research: A Public Dialog

| WWW: http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/3611
| E-mail: obogler@ucsd.edu

You are invited to join a discussion about the perception and realities of
Cancer Research.
Cancer touches millions of lives. In spite of the advances in understanding 
the disease that have been made, Cancer Research has failed to deliver the
Millions of dollars are spent on Cancer Research annually, in publicly funded 
programs, by charitable foundations and in private research institutes.
What are your perceptions of Cancer Research? Do you think it is
money well spent? Are we on the right track? Was your perception altered 
by Cancer, if you are a survivor or have a loved-one suffering from it?
