<x-rich>Dear Arabinetters!


I am conducting a brief survey on the demand for Ds T-DNA donor sites
whose location is known.  (Keep in mind that about half of
transpositions of Ac-based transposons are to sites within 1 Mb and
1/4-1/3 to sites within 200 kb of the donor site!)


Please take a moment to answer the following simple questions:


1.  If a large number of mapped transposon T-DNA donor lines were
available and you could find one close to your
<italic>Arabidopsis</italic> gene(s) of interest, would you do
transposon mutagenesis to tag your gene?


___yes   ___no


2.  If the answer to 1 is "yes," would you be willing to contribute the
additional lines with transposed elements you generated to a common
pool for others to use?


___yes   ___no


3.  Would you be interested in participating in a collaborative effort
to map transposon T-DNAs?


___yes   ___no


4.  If the answer to 3 is "yes," please be sure your e-mail reply
contains contact information (name, address, phone, fax, as well as
e-mail).


Thanks.


Nina Fedoroff
