 TAIR is pleased to announce the Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs)
 table at

 This first set of SNPs was generously provided to us by Dr. Michael
 Mindrinos and includes the entire set of 412 SNPs described in Cho et
 al., Nat Genet 1999 Oct. 23(2):203-7. These SNPs have been given the
 additional prefix SGC- for the Stanford Genome Center. New SNPs will be
 added and given contributor-specific prefixes.

 THe sequences shown in the table have been confirmed by sequencing and
 HPLC to be polymorphic between the Col and Ler ecotypes. A subset of the
 SNPs that have been experimentally shown to distinguish between Col and
 Ler on oligonucleotide arrays are indicated by asterisks. Using BLAST we
 have located 286 of the SNPs to AGI clones on the TAIR sequence map
 (http://arabidopsis.org/cgi-bin/maps/Schrom) and sequence table
 RI map positions for many of the SNPs will also be available shortly.

 The utility of the SNPs as markers may also be extended. Approximately
 30% of the SNPs should contain restriction site polymorphisms that can be
 used to develop CAPs markers. We will update the table with data on the
 restriction sites soon. Some polymorphic regions are deletions/insertions
 that may be useful in designing SSLP primers.

 Please let us know if you develop any of these SNPs into markers and we
 will update our Marker table.
