Hello everyone!

You are receiving this e-mail because you are a current user of the  
Ambystoma Genetic Stock Center. We appreciate your patronage and are  
here to support your research and education needs. We are in the  
process of creating a list of users on the AGSC website. We would  
like to list user address, email, and website information: to be  
included on the website, please send this information by e-mail (to:  
ambystoma At uky.edu). If you know of anyone we should add to the  
website or e-mail group, please let us know.

The AGSC has been in operation a little more than 1 year at  
University of Kentucky. The axolotl collection that was housed  
previously at Indiana University is now well acclimated. Our plan is  
to periodically send out e-mails to announce new products (e.g. GFP- 
expressing axolotls!), as well as information concerning research and  
sales items. We will also send out a survey sometime within the next  
month to obtain feedback about AGSC products and services.

We would appreciate receiving recent publications/citation pertaining  
to your work with the Mexican axolotl. Hopefully in the near future  
we will be able to quickly identify all axolotl-enabled work via  
database searches using keywords and integrate this information into  
the Sal-Site website (www.ambystoma.org). In this respect, it would  
be helpful to include 'axolotl' or 'ambystoma' as keywords in your  

Finally, it is very important for all AGSC and Sal-Site users to  
acknowledge NSF and NIH funding mechanisms in the acknowledgements  
sections of your publications. Both NSF and NIH program directors  
encourage acknowledgement of federal support for Ambystoma research  
resources. Thus:

·      If your published work is based upon material obtained from  
the AGSC or information obtained from the AGSC website, the NSF  
requests that you cite the AGSC and the specific grant supporting the  
AGSC. The NSF-funded AGSC is supported by the following grant  
mechanism: NSF-DBI-0443496.

·      If your published work is based upon genome resources or  
bioinformation obtained from the Sal-Site website, the National  
Center for Research Resources at the National Institutes of Health  
requests that you cite the specific grant that supports Ambystoma  
research resource development. The NIH-NCRR grant mechanism is: NIH- 

Thanks for your continued support.
