your items now to share with Cooperators in this fresh, current form. See MNL

cytogenetics of maize. The information and data are sent by Cooperators with
the understanding that they will not be used in publications without author
HOW TO SUBMIT NOTES
1. A double-spaced, letter-quality hard copy of your text is essential to
ensure that your content is prepared and formatted as you intend. Be concise,
not formal, but do include specific data, tables, observations and methods.
Follow the simple style used in the latest issue (CITY; Institution; Title;
--Authors; Text). Include citations in text in the simple format (Authors
with Initials, Journal, Volume:pp, year), which aids us in indexing and
cross-linking. Figures and tables should be compact, camera-ready hard
copies, and supplied as jpg or gif images if possible.
2. Send an electronic version.
--Preferably, attach to an email message to coee at missouri.edu, followed with
a hard copy.
--Alternatively, as the text of an email, followed with a hard copy.
--Alternatively, by FTP to teosinte.agron.missouri.edu , login user
anonymous; password your email address. Use the pub/mnl_submit directory,
transfer graphics with the bin (not binhex) mode. Name files with the
submitter's last name and use a number to distinguish multiple articles.
Filenames without internal spaces are preferable. After an FTP, alert us with
an email to coee at missouri.edu and follow with a hard copy.
--Alternatively, send a diskette marked with author, platform (e.g., MS-DOS;
Mac), and word processor or ASCII, with a hard copy.
