Dear Prakash,

That {DNA-Free} page is mine. I made it in my spare time and has nothing to
do with my actual work at CSIRO. And actually I am NOT serious. The page is
copyright April 1 1999. I am not sure if you got the joke and are playing
along or you did not get the joke. But it does not matter - I am quite
happy to have
it portrayed as serious on this mailing list. :-)
