        Steve Kain (email: SteveK at clontech.com) and I are editing a book on 
GFP and we would like to get as much involvement from the scientific community 
as possible.  Below I have given an outline of the book and indicated the 
authors for each of the chapters.  If you would like to contribute information 
(e.g., manuscripts in press, unpublished results, pretty pictures, suggestions 
of topics that you would like to see covered, names of people whose work we 
should know about), please contact Steve. me or any of the authors.  I am 
particularly interested in hearing about experiences in organisms not covered 
by the chapters below.  We are on a rather tight schedule (we'd like to have a 
draft by the time of the Cell Biology Meeting in December), so please email us 
soon with your suggestions and comments.  Unfortunately, we cannot answer 
questions about how to use gfp, but we would like include your observations.  

Thanks for your help.
