Species Stock Center Call for Isogenic Lines

The Tucson Drosophila Species Stock Center is seeking inbred or 
isofemale strains of the following Drosophila species:  D. ananassae, 
D. willistoni, D. erecta, D. sechellia, D. persimilis, D. mojavensis, 
D. virilis and D.grimshawi.  A proposal to sequence the genomes of 
these species has been  favorably reviewed by the GRASPP panel.  A 
final decision by Council is anticipated in the near future.  In order 
to be well-positioned to move forward in the event of a favorable 
decision, and to involve the research community in the selection of 
strains for possible sequencing, the Stock Center is beginning to 
catalogue and maintain the candidate strains of these eight species.

Strains to be deposited with the TSC should include collection 
information (date, location, name of collector) and maintenance history 
(number of generations of sib-mating, pauses in inbreeding, etc.), any 
available genetic data, and any references reporting the use of the 
strains.

Flies and associated information should be mailed to:

Species Sequencing Collection
Tucson Stock Center
Biological Sciences West (BSW) Room-606
University of Arizona
1041 E. Lowell St.
Tucson, AZ 85721-0088
USA
