A consortium of private and public organiztions has proposed a project to
map the corn genome, called the National Corn Genome Initiative (NCGI). We
believe that Federal funding would be appropriate since a corn genome map
would be of National importance,
 and keeping the map in the public domain would benefit all associated
plant and biological sciences.
	Details of the NCGI are available at:
	a) http://www.inverizon.com
			then use the "NCGI" icon
or	b) http://www.inverizon.com/ncgi

	Please feel free to circulate this web address to your colleagues
and associates.
	Your support would be appreciated via either constructive
criticism/new approaches to help the project succeed, or by vocal support
through your political representative or professional scientific
association.

Thank you,
Jim McLaren
NCGI Plan Coordinator
