Standardization of Pioneer Hi-Bred RFLP probe nomenclature
--Debra L. Blair

We have recently begun an effort to standardize the nomenclature of biological material from Pioneer Hi-Bred to ensure that it is consistent with the rules developed by the Maize Nomenclature Committee. We have made every effort to keep this system both informative and easy to use--two things not always easy to unite! We will be adopting a three letter prefix for all material. The first two letters "ph" denote Pioneer Hi-Bred. The third letter denotes the type of material being described: for example, a third letter of "p" will be used to denote cloned DNA. We will be establishing a glossary for all third letter codes in 1993 and will submit it to the 1994 Newsletter.

We find it is necessary to alter the probe names used on our previously published maps to accommodate this nomenclature standardization. We will no longer use the designator "pio", but will now use "php". We have also dropped the central 0 (zero) in our number to help streamline the name. By making these two changes, we hope to keep our naming convention consistent with that agreed upon by the scientific community, while keeping any necessary changes intuitive and at a minimum. The new RFLP probe names are given in the accompanying list.
