Please post the following letter on bionet. Drosophila

>Dear Drosophilists,
>>Because of the wide use of the GAL4/UAS system to study Drosophila
>>development, we are asking your help in establishing a database of the
>>various Gal4 and UAS lines that have been generated to date. We would like
>>to receive from your laboratory a description of the lines that you have
>>generated and feel are appropriate for distribution at this time.
>> It is our goal to make this database accessible to all through
>>FlyBase.  For this purpose, Bill Gelbart and colleagues have set up a
>>FlyBase Web site with forms for direct submission of the data on these
>>GAL4 and UAS lines.  The URL for this site is:
>>The information requested by FlyBase will allow people to submit
>>new and updated GAL4/UAS information in a way that will allow it
>>to be posted quickly on FlyBase.
>>We are requesting that submission of the materials be made by October 31st.
>>This will allow us to determine the level of interest for generating this
>>type of database.
>>Our only request is that if you list a line, you respond to requests for
>>stocks publicized in the database. We expect to work with the Bloomington
>>Stock Center to expand their collection of GAL4/UAS lines to minimize the
>>burden of sending stocks.
>>If you have questions about the FlyBase data submission forms, you
>>should email: flybase-help at  Other questions should
>>be addressed to Norbert or Andrea.
>>We are looking forward working with you in this project.
