Thanks to all who responded to my recent email request for
information on mutant genes of Arabidopsis. The following
individuals/labs have responded to date:
Ruegger/Chapple, Bartel, Bachmair, Chen/Meyerowitz, Rock, P.
Morris, Baskin, Schiefelbein, Wagner/Meyerowitz, Jang/Sheen,
Schaeffner, Spielman/Dickinson, Wasteneys, Meisel/Lam,
Whitham/Carrington, Melo-Oliveira/Coruzzi, Innes, Araki,
Silverstone/Sun, Hauser, Sessions/Zambryski, Grbic, Town.
Unfortunately, many of you have still NOT responded. Please
take a moment to review information on mutant genes available
through the WWW site listed below. This information is being
requested NOW because a major update of the classical genetic map
is underway. This update is required for future publications that
should benefit the entire community and increase the visibility of
Arabidopsis research worldwide.
Please provide updated information if ANY of the following apply:
1. Your mutant gene symbol is not included on the approved list.
2. You have information on the chromosomal location of a mutant
gene that is not included on the linkage table.
3. You have determined allelism between mutants with different
names and this information is not reflected on the gene symbol
list or linkage table.
4. You find a mistake in the list of gene symbols, linkage table,
classical genetic map, or email address of contributing labs.
I estimate that at least 50 individuals/laboratories have not yet
contributed relevant information on mutant genes.
PLEASE RESPOND WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY.
