WEEDS WORLD FIRST ISSUE DEADLINE APPROACHES

I hope that you had the opportunity to read about the launch of the 
new Arabidopsis Community Newsletter, Weeds World in my last
announcement.

A demonstration edition of the newsletter is available from
three WWW server sites. Use the following URLs to connect 
to the server nearest you.

http://nasc.nott.ac.uk:8300   (Nottingham, UK)
http://weeds.mgh.harvard.edu/weedsworld/home.html   (MGH, 
Boston, MA, USA)
http://probe.nalusda.gov:8300/aboutaatdb.html   (NAL, Belstville, 
MD, USA)

The first edition of the newsletter will be published during 
November and so here is a final call for submissions for the 
newsletter.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS 30TH OCTOBER.

For those of you who are preparing to send something in for 
inclusion in the newsletter, here is a reminder of how to submit your 
information.

HOW TO FORMAT TEXT FILES
Start each article with a title and the name and address of authors.
Arrange the text into clearly defined blocks of paragraphs.If images 
or tables are to be included, please indicate where you wish them to 
be placed. 

Articles will not be refereed but some editorial control will operate. 

Please indicate whether you wish your piece to be considered for 
inclusion in the Plant Molecular Biology Reporter. 

HOW TO PREPARE IMAGES
Images can only be accepted as image files (preferably GIF or JPEG 
Files), the one exception being cartoon line drawings. If you wish to 
send an image and don't have a local computer guru to help prepare 
the file contact me at arabidopsis at nottingham.ac.uk for help. Line 
drawings must be of high quality with thick lines and high contrast. 
Scanning is very labour intensive and we shall only be prepared to 
do one or two scans per edition, so try and send your pictures as 
image files.

HOW TO SUBMIT ARTICLES AND IMAGES
Text files can be sent by email to arabidopsis at nottingham.ac.uk, 
please put "Weeds World Article"in the subject line of the message. 
 Try and keep as much formatting as you can when sending text files 
as this will make the production editors job much easier.  If your 
article contains some fancy formatting, please send a hard copy of 
your article to : Mary Anderson, Nottingham Arabidopsis Stock 
Centre, Dept of Life Science, Nottingham University, University 
Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD, UK.  

Files can also be sent on disc (either Mac or PC compatible) along 
with a hard copy of your article to the address above.
Sorry, but we will not be able to return discs. 

For those of you who are comfortable with ftp, text and graphics 
files can be sent by anonymous ftp to nasc.nott.ac.uk 

ANY QUESTIONS?
If you require any further information, please contact
