Dear Chlamy people,

I would like to trace back the history of the C. reinhardtii strain 
known as 495 (mt+). We obtained it from Dr. A. Chunaev at 
St.-Petersburg University (St. Petersburg, Russia). He told us that 
originally this strain was selected from Levine-Ebersold background 
as negatively phototactic.

Could anyone add anything to this information and/or supply any 
references regarding this strain?

Thank you very much in advance,

Yours sincerely,

Dr Elena Govorunova
