We are pleased to announce the opening of the Biodiversity and
Ecosystems NEtwork (BENE) webserver, hosted by the Keck Center
for Genome Informatics at Texas A&M University. In addition to
the Keck Center, the other founding partners are the National
Performance Review NetResults project, the Smithsonian
Institution, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. We
welcome other partners.
For those with Worldwide Web (WWW) browsers such as Mosaic,
NetScape, or Lynx, the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) for the
BENE webserver is: http://straylight.tamu.edu/bene/bene.html .
The goal of the BENE webserver is to help those interested in
biodiversity and ecosystems to find information, and foster
dialogue and collaborations. BENE also represents a demonstration
of some of the capabilities suggested for the proposed U.S.
National Biodiversity Information Center (NBIC).
BENE also provides a listserver to encourage discussions,
queries, and information sharing. To subscribe to the BENE list,
send a message to:
listproc at straylight.tamu.edu
with the text:

The subject line is ignored by the list processor.
