Dear All,
I want to get Ay088768 and AJ294464 community clones, Does anyone know where to order it?
I appreciate your help.
Best regards

University of Washington, Seattle

Two postdoctoral positions (one position may be converted for a
Research Tech) are available immediately to study stomatal patterning
and differentiation.  We have shown that a family of three
receptor-like kinases controls the density and orientation of
asymmetric cell division and stomatal differentiation (Shpak et al.
2005 Science 309:290-293).  Our more recent work has led to a discovery
of a candidate ligand gene as well as downstream 'key switch'
transcription factors that direct a series of cell-state transition
leading to stomatal differentiation (Pillitteri et al. 2007 Nature
445:501-505; Hara et al. 2007 Genes & Dev 15:1720-1725).

Position 1. Receptor-Ligand Interactions and Dynamics: A successful
candidate will develop new methods to study ligand-receptor
interactions and dynamics at cellular and subcellular levels using
molecular-genetic tools readily available in my laboratory.  The
project seeks to unravel how cell-cell signals, specifically,
ligand-receptor actions will translate into stomatal cell-type
differentiation during epidermal development.

Position 2. Transcription factors controlling stomatal differentiation:
  A successful candidate will study the molecular and genetic mechanisms
of how a family of bHLH transcription factors direct cell fate
decisions to form stomata. Furthermore, the successful candidate will
continue our current transcriptional profiling efforts to characterize
molecular signatures associated with stomatal stem cell state.

Candidates must have excellent communication skills, ability to conduct
research independently and as a team, and strong backgrounds in
molecular biology, genetics, and imaging/microscopy. Candidates must be
proficient and in confocal microscopy and imaging at tissue-,
cellular-, or subcellular levels as well as basic protein biochemistry
(i.e. Western blotting, co-p) for position 1.  Previous experience in
microarray analysis and Chromatin IP experiments are highly desired for
position 2.   Either position may be considered for a qualified
Research Technician, who wishes to gain experience before heading for
the graduate career.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience (based on the
NIH scale according to the University Guideline).  The position 1
currently has funding until 2011 (supported by NSF); the position 2 is
initially available for one year.  Either position will be renewed
annually based on the performance and funding availability. The
successful candidate will be encouraged to apply for independent
fellowships.  Due to the guideline of University of Washington,
preference will be given to candidates with less than four years of
postdoctoral experience.

goals, current curriculum vitae, and a name and e-mail address of three

Dear Sir / Madam,

I am Md. Abu Sadat, completed MS in Plant Pathology from Sher-e-Bangla
Agricultural University, Dhaka-1207, and Bangladesh. I am writing to inquire
about the possibilities of joining as a Ph.D. student with a scholarship in
your university.

I have conducted research *on "Management of Root Knot of Banana Seedlings
with Bio-agent, Organic Soil Amendment, Chemical and their Combinations "*.
My paper has been published on *Int. J. Sustain. Agril.Tech.3 (4): August
2007*. I have also got brand score *6.00* in IELTS examination. I want to
research in advance level in any branch of agriculture.

I will highly appreciate if you go over my resume and consider me for a
possible PhD student.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from
you soon.

Kind Regards

Md. Abu Sadat
Assistant Rural Development Officer (ARDO)
