Genetic Variation Among Ecotypes

We are beginning an experiment to examine genetic variation
among a large sample of Arabidopsis ecotypes, and we
welcome input from other researchers.

=46irst, we will determine AFLP genotypes for about 150
ecotypes.  Second, we will use this information to
eliminate genetically similar ecotypes, leading to a subset
of about 50 ecotypes that will hopefully encompass most of
the genetic variation present within Arabidopsis thaliana.
=46inally, this "reference set" will be genotyped for
additional markers.  We hope these ecotypes will be useful
for future screens of phenotypic and genetic variation in
many traits.  In addition, these data can contribute to
population and evolutionary genetic analyses, such as the
association and disequilibrium mapping methods being used
in human genetics.  All data from this study will be
available on the net.

To be useful for the Arabidopsis research community, we
need to sample diverse ecotypes representing the full range
of variation within the species.  Ecotypes planned for
inclusion in this experiment are listed below.  We welcome
suggestions (and seeds) for additional ecotypes to be
included in this experiment.  We are especially interested
in commonly used ecotypes that are missing from our list,
or ecotypes that may be unique due to geographic origin or
other characteristics.

Thanks for your help.
