I am posting this message for Dennis Powers FH.DAP at forsythe.stanford.edu

Dear Colleagues,

I have contacted a company who may be willing to make a zebrafish YAC library, 
but they want to obtain some feeling for the level of intrest in the zebrafish 
community.  While a number of my colleagues have encouraged me to pursue the 
creation of a YAC library, I have not done an extensive survey of the 
zebrafish scientific community.  If you are interested in having a zebrafish 
YAC library available for your current or future research, I would greatly 
appreciate it if you would send me a brief note or e-mail stating that you are 
interested or may be interested in it in the future.  This same company 
is also interested in making cDNA and genomic libraries from puffer fish DNA. 
If you are also interested in any of these libraries, I would be happy to 
forward the company's name and address to you once they have built the 

You may respond to:

Dennis A. Powers, Director
Hopkins Marine Station
Stanford University
Pacific Grove, CA 93950
(408) 655-6214 / FAX (408) 373-1254

While they will probably proceed with the puffer fish libraries within a few 
weeks, they haven't decided about the zebrafish YAC library and I would 
greatly appreciate your support in convincing them that the zebrafish 
community is really interested.  If there is any other information that you 
would like me to pass on to this company, I would be happy to relate whatever 
you send me.

Dennis Powers
