Designation of bif2
--M. G. Neuffer and Steve Briggs

We have recently located a recessive barren inflorescence mutant (bif*-2354, from EMS treatment) to 3L using a B-A hypoploid test. This mutant turns out to be allelic to Briggs' bif*-47330 (Briggs and Johal, MNL66:51 1992). We are designating this gene as bif2, with the two alleles described above.
