I might need doubled haploid lines to be developed, but not as a 
commercial venture, more like the open source ideas of Linux and GNU - 
I'm not too clear on the exact legal structure of it all. I believe I 
can get more cooperation from people on this basis, and so far, I have 
had a good response.

The project is to develop alder as a grain crop. I have found an 
interesting variation in the wild, I am looking for more and I can 
foresee the need for doubled haploids for reasons which I don't have 
to explain.

If you feel that you cannot waste your time on a project which is for 
free, I fully understand, but I have no idea where to start, I would 
be grateful for your reading list. There is no urgency, I cannot start 
til next spring.
