Dear Arabidopsis researchers,

In consultation with members of the Arabidopsis community I've written a
draft policy statement outlining proposed evidence standards for
updating the Arabidopsis genome sequence.  These evidence standards are 
intended to reflect a community consensus on the strength of evidence 
that should be required to correct sequencing errors and ensure the best 
possible quality and consistency for the Arabidopsis genome sequence.

Please have a look at the policy statement and add your comments and 
suggestions for revision at the bottom of the document.  You can access 
the document and add your comments here:


Comments and suggestions will be incorporated into a final version of 
the policy document by the end of March 2009.

Best regards,

Eva Huala
TAIR Director
