Dear Netters,
someone told me about a simple method do prepare clones for sending by
mail: spot some suspension culture on a sterile pice of whatman, dry
(air dry or lyophylisate?) seal in a plastic bag - that's it. Put it
in an envelope and off they go! To get the clones back, just throw the
paper in liquid selective medium!
Sounds very simple and easy to do!  Does anyone know about this
method?
