<x-charset ISO-8859-1>To support the community's understanding of 
gene function in Arabidopsis,
the Syngenta Arabidopsis Consortium has created a T-DNA insertion
collection consisting of approximately 100,000 plants in the Columbia
ecotype.  Left border flanking regions from each plant were amplified
using TAIL PCR, sequenced, and assembled into a database.  The
database is formatted to search for insertions in genes of interest
by BLAST and the results point researchers to individual seed vials.
To search the database for T-DNA insertions in genes of interest, please
visit WWW.TMRI.ORG to obtain instructions and forms.  Requests for
seeds from this collection are available through a TMRI collaboration
or material transfer agreement.
