ABRC & NASC Campaign for Mutant Stocks

Dear Colleagues,

As you know, the Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center (ABRC) and 
the Nottingham Arabidopsis Stock Centre (NASC) are conducting another 
campaign for mutant donations. It is our goal to procure as many of 
the published mutant strains of Arabidopsis as possible. While, in 
the past, Arabidopsis researchers have enthusiastically supported the 
sharing of genetic stocks through ABRC and NASC, we have received 
only a modest number of new donations in response to our initial 
solicitation message in early December.  Hence, we are renewing our 
request for donations of mutants to the collection.  Please 
contribute to this important effort that will benefit the entire 
Arabidopsis community.

If you are uncertain whether a particular mutant is already included 
in our collections, stocks can be searched by Locus or Allele Symbol 
in the Germplasm sections of NASC  http://arabidopsis.info and TAIR 
http://arabidopsis.org.  To find a germplasm by locus or gene in 
TAIR, enter the desired gene symbol in a box for which "gene symbol" 
type of search has been selected, and execute the search.  A list of 
germplasms will appear, and a stock ordering box will appear to the 
right of those that are available stocks.

The procedure for submission of seeds is very simple.  Just follow 
the instructions in TAIR or on the NASC Web site. We prefer to 
receive distribution quantities of seeds packaged in cryovials. 
Smaller amounts can be accepted if you cannot perform the seed 
increases necessary for donation of the larger quantity.  Duplicate 
donations to NASC and ABRC are not required, as we share all stocks. 
We can provide tubes and envelopes for donations, if you wish.

You can provide the appropriate stock data for your donations by 
completing the donation forms available on the TAIR or NASC Web 
sites.  These forms are completely electronic and may forwarded to us 
by e-mail and/or filled out on-line.  The locations of the donation 
forms are:

  ABRC -  http://arabidopsis.org/info/abrc_submission.jsp
  NASC -  left-hand bar (seed donation form) on http://arabidopsis.info/

We look forward to receiving your mutants.  Do not hesitate to send 
any other lines or DNA stocks which you have characterized and are 
not part of our collections.  Natural accessions are an example of 
seed stocks which we would be pleased to receive. Expression vectors, 
full length cDNA clones and novel libraries are DNA stocks in which 
we would be very interested.  The list of donations and donors is 
provided below.

Thank you for your assistance to us and to the Arabidopsis research 
community in this important endeavor.  The continued cooperation we 
have received from Arabidopsis researchers is greatly appreciated. 
We encourage you to join us in continuing this important task.

Very sincerely,

Randy Scholl                    Sean May
