Dear Dr. Cobbett:
We have recently cloned the Arabidopsis gene that corresponds to the
tt3 allele. However, this work is not yet published and we have not yet
started distributing the clones. We would be willing to send out a clone
with the agreement that it would be used solely for walking.
In addition, we are also interested in another locus in the vicinity
of tt3. Perhaps you could send us particulars on the experiments you are
planning. It would be useful to collaborate in assembling a high resolution
map of this region.
Please let me know what you think about this,
(postdoc in Howard Goodman's lab)
P.S. I will be away from the lab from Friday until next Wednesday, in case you
don't hear back from me right away.
