We are pleased to announce that the Material Transfer Agreement (MTA)
for the Sainsbury laboratory Arabidopsis transposant (SLAT) collection has
been substantially modified by the donors of this very powerful resource.

The new MTA can be viewed during most stages of the seed / DNA ordering
process at NASC :


- or directly from:


This change is now likely to make the various components of the SLAT
resource (seeds, DNA and filters) more attractive and readily
available to Universities and Institutes that may have previously
experienced internal/legal problems in accessing this collection for
forward and reverse genetics.

We would like to thank the Sainsbury Lab at the John Innes centre for
taking this move to make their resource more generally accessible, and of
course for donating these materials to the public sector in the first
