Chris,
                The Genetics Society of America arranged a deal through
American Biorganics, Inc. for fly agar and other reagents. The agar can be
purchased through GSA if you're a member. There are many different kinds of
agar at a variety of prices, down to $32.66 for 25 kg. Other than that,
Bill Geer put me onto a place called Moorhead Co. in California that sold
me a 25 lb can of quality agar for about ca. $300. Its good stuff. I'll
have to find the address if you're interested.

Bill
