If you're at NIH you can join the mailing list in either of the following ways.  (1) Send the message "SUBSCRIBE LAMBDA_LUNCH-L 'your name'" from the computer where you usually receive mail to LISTSERV@LIST.NIH.GOV. Replace 'your name' by your first and last names; or (2) go to http://list.nih.gov/, browse the lists to find Lambda_Lunch-L, and follow the instructions.  If you're not at NIH, contact mailto:susang@helix.nih.gov. Susan Gottesman. This schedule is also available at  http://www.lecb.ncifcrf.gov//lambda.html.
