Subject: RI map database and mapping service moves to 
Nottingham Arabidopsis Stock Centre

Clare Lister (John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK) has formally 
handed over the recombinant inbred (RI) map database for the 
Lister and Dean RI lines (Lister and Dean 1993 Plant Journal 4, 745-750 ),
 which she has developed over the last four years, to the 
Nottingham Arabidopsis Stock Centre (NASC). NASC will now 
maintain the database, display regular updates to the RI map and 
continue to offer a mapping service to the community. 

Anyone can send in their mapping data to NASC for mapping.
We have designed a special form for data submission to help 
you send in the data in the correct format. We recommend that 
you use this form for data submission and that you fill in the 
information for each line. It has been designed to allow us to 
automatically enter your data and so circumvents any potential 
problems with typing errors. The form is available through the 
NASC WWW server (URL=http://nasc.nott.ac.uk/RI_submit.html)

The positions of all markers mapped by NASC will be made 
publically available through the NASC WWW server 
(http://nasc.nott.ac.uk/new_ri_map.html). The mapping data will 
be run once a week and the main map updated once a month. 

Please note that NASC can supply information about the probes 
on request. However, NASC does not distribute any of the markers. 
DNA markers must be obtained from either the Arabidopsis 
Biological Resource Center (ABRC) at Ohio State 
(arabidopsis+ at osu.edu) or from the investigators themselves. 
Stocks of the RI lines are available from NASC 
(http://nasc.nott.ac.uk/) and ABRC (http://aims.cps.msu.edu/aims/) .

As promised at the 7th International Arabidopsis Meeting at Norwich, 
Clare Lister has made one last version of the map. This is will be 
published in the next issue of Weeds World, which is due
out in the next few days, and will be available as a text file and 
as a graphic.

If you have any questions, please contact Mary Anderson 
(arabidopsis at nottingham.ac.uk)
