FlyBase update October 20, 1993 - new P1 clone and P element lists
G. M. Rubin and the Drosophila Genome Center have made updated lists of
P1 clones and new lists of P element lines available to FlyBase. The
lists can be accessed either through the FlyBase Gopher server or by
anonymous ftp from the Flybase server (fly.bio.indiana.edu).
There are now 2038 P1 clones available from designated distributing
laboratories and 508 P element insertion lines available from the
Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center.
The lists are available in "comma-separated value" (csv) file form, which
can be used by many spreadsheet and database programs, as well as in
formatted tables files sorted in order of polytene chromosome band
location and files used to support gopher searches by polytene location
or clone or P element name.
There are three documentation files. P1.doc describes the P1 clone list
files, and Pelement.doc describes the P element files. LBL.doc provides
information on how the P1 clones and P element insertions were generated
and describes how to obtain the clones.
The data and documentation files are found under the "Drosophila Genome
Center @ Berkeley" choice in the genome-projects menu of the FlyBase
Allied fly data folder using the FlyBase gopher server at IUBio. The
anonymous ftp directory is flybase/allied-data/genome-projects/lbl.
