To Maize Geneticists :-
If you have any good tester combinations you wish to send in so that they may be made available for the whole group or if there is any combination of genes you would like to have, will you please notify us here at Cornell so that we may list your contributions and wants in the corn-letter which will come out in the near future. January 1st has been set as the deadline for receipt of material to be included in the letter. Will you please cooperate with us so that we can make this cooperative affair a real service to all concerned.
We plan to include in the letter a summary of the technique employed by the Russian physiologist, Lysenko, in his "Springefication" of corn.
If any of you have this year's linkage data which could be added to the linkage summary, we shall be glad to receive them at once. The summary is in preparation for publication.
