The task of FlyBase in curating the literature is greatly helped by
having offprints of papers available to the curators. Although the
Cambridge (UK) FlyBase group send out requests for papers, based upon
their inclusion in BIOSIS, it would be very helpful indeed if investigators
would send copies of reprints directly to FlyBase at both of the following
two addresses (each site is responsible for curating different elements
of the same paper):
Department of Genetics The Biological Laboratories
Downing Street Harvard University
Cambridge CB2 3EH 16 Divinity Avenue
England Cambridge, MA 02138
We should add that the long term aim will be to annotate the FlyBase
Drosophila bibliography with respect to papers held in Cambridge (UK).
Then FlyBase hopes to offer a service to the community for providing
(probably at cost) copies of papers that are otherwise hard to obtain.
