The following is a summary of DNA clones that are currently available for distribution as stabs from the UMC RFLP Laboratory.

Please note that within these categories of clones we may not have or are not permitted to distribute all clones of that designation. We do not distribute npi clones with numbers less than 100, nor certain umc clones that were sent to us with restrictions. We distribute specific defined-function clones on a case-by-case basis. We do not have uaz clones in the 1C, 2C, 3C and 7C series, and are unable to provide these at this time. To be certain that a particular clone is available please check the Available From line on the probe form of the maize database--clones available from the UMC RFLP Laboratory will show T. Musket, who is the clone distribution coordinator. Clicking on T. Musket will give address and e-mail information. The easiest method to request clones is to use the probe request form directly from the maize database WWW homepage URL=http://teosinte.agron.missouri.edu. Please be certain to enter information in each field on the request form to aid our processing of your request. If you are unable to use the World Wide Web, send your request to Theresa A. Musket (address, phone and email in this Newsletter; FAX is 314-874-4063). Please provide your name, full mailing address, and email address if available.

Over the last two years the number of clones for which we are responsible for distribution has grown from a few hundred to greater than three thousand. Our resources, both personnel and financial, for maintenance and distribution of clones are very limited. Please request only those clones necessary for your experiments. Because of concurrent research commitments we have been having difficulty answering clone requests as rapidly as we (and you) would like. Please request clones as far in advance of need as possible.

We thank Asgrow Seeds, Mycogen Plant Genetics and Pioneer Hi-Bred International for their generous donations of probes to the maize research community. The cooperation of individuals in making defined-function clones available is equally appreciated.
