        Meiotic markers.
        
        A colleague, Nick Vorsa, is interested in identifying markers for 
        meiotic abnormalities in species of Vaccinium including cultivat-
        ed cranberry and blueberry.  It occurred to us that there may be 
        some Arabidopsis probes for identifying genes that regulate 
        different stages in meiosis.  Examples of mutants in maize are 
        ameiotic (am-1 and -2), absence of first division (afd), asynap-
        tic (as), desynaptic (dys), and variable sterile mutants (va-1 
        and -2) which appear to be associated with cytokinesis.  Nick and 
        I would be interested in exchanging ideas on the utility of 
        Arabidopsis probes as a tool for exploring the regulation of 
        meiosis.
