Dear Anellidians, colleagues and friends,
with some colleagues of my Institute, the Stazione Zoologica of  
Naples, we have started a new project related to analysis of CG%  
content of DNA in polychaetes, in order to test a hypothesis related  
to metabolism and motility of species.
To test this we need as many polar/cold water species is possible, as  
well as many sessile/tubicolous species.
Therefore, this message is to ask for samples (fixed in ethanol) of  
any kind of sessile/tubicolous polychaete species (Sabellidae,  
Serpulidae, Sabellariidae, Terebellidae, Siboglinidae) or any kind of  
polar/cold water taxa. We can rely also on small pieces of tissues of  
such species or of extract of DNA, if this could be simpler.
In return we can acknowledge of course any of you for the material and  
send samples of temperate species (Mediterranean) if you need for  
other purposes.
In case the amount of material you can provide is conspicuous, we are  
open and willing to collaborate and therefore you can contact in  
advance for a formal agreement.

With my kindest regards,
Maria Cristina Gambi

P.S. it may help to inform that various years ago I published one of  
the first paper related to the C-value (DNA content) in polychaetes  
(Gambi et al., 1997, JMBA UK), in case I'll be pleased to send you the  
pdf copy.
