Mutant Gene Symbols

Members of Arabidopsis Community:

Over the past year, I have compiled numerous additions to the published 
list of mutant gene symbols for Arabidopsis (prepared September 1993 and 
printed in Appendix I of the Year 3 Arabidopsis Genome Project Report,  
known as the Yellow Book, and available through Arabidopsis databases).  

I am now concerned that many people in the community are starting to 
name mutants in preparation for the upcoming Arabidopsis meetings in 
Madison without remembering to consult me about the availability of 
mutant gene symbols.  

I have therefore summarized below all recent additions to the published 
list.  If you have a new mutant to name, please make sure that your 
symbol of choice is not on the main list or the supplement below, and 
then remember to contact me with your proposed symbol.  

You should also contact me if you have used a symbol already on the 
list.  Conflicts of this type will need to be resolved.           

If you have contacted me about a gene symbol and not received a response, 
please try again in case your original message was not received.  

Please do not contact me at this time about nomenclature of cloned genes 
or sequences not associated with a mutation.  You will note that I have 
included some of those symbols at the end of the list below, but I have 
not compiled a comprehensive list.  This will need to be done at a later 

Thanks for your assistance.
