 A really good program for any kind of record-keeping is NotebookII put out by
 Pro/tem Software, Stanford, CA. Fields can be expanded as you need them up to
 about 64K. It is also very useful for references--you can put all the comments
 you want on them! The program comes with Bibliography, which will sort through
 your manuscript and your reference file and make you a bibliography, and 
 Convert which enables you to set up a file for converting database literature
 searches to your reference file format, e.g. we get Current Contents on 
 diskette, save the PIC file in the Dialog/Medline format, and then convert it
 to Notebook format. Our computing centre has a site license: all three programs
 bundled cost about $115 (Can). Maybe we could get an Arabidopsis "deal"?

 Dear Network,
 
 We realize that we need a database to keep records of crosses and mutant
 strains/transgenic stocks in our lab.  We don't have anything suitable in
 Rockefeller. We would be very glad to hear from anyone who is currently run-
 ning or planning such a program: what software, what fields, which language,
 etc. Please contact us on the network-perhaps some of the computer experts
 would like to comment?
 
 Andrew.
