Listing of reciprocal translocation
stocks being maintained by individual cooperators
--William F. Sheridan
One of the advantages of maize for biological
research is the availability of a large number of reciprocal translo-cations.
The collection originally compiled and characterized by Longley and Anderson
contained about 1000 translocation stocks. About 85% of these are available
from the Stock Center (see MNL 55:140, 1981). Some potentially useful translocations
of the original collection that are not in the Stock Center collection
may be in the genetic stock collections of individual cooperators. This
note is a request that interested cooperators send me a listing of the
reciprocal translocation stocks they are maintaining. I will compile a
combined listing of these stocks and distribute the list to the contributors.
In this way we may locate some translocations not available from the Stock
Center and also provide a list of backup sources for the Stock Center collection.
Send your list to me at Box 8238 University Station, Grand Forks, ND 58202.
