Dear Worm Breeder,
Welcome to the second issue of Volume 14 of the WBG.  Also enclosed is 
the latest WBG Subscriber Directory; let us know if anything needs 
updating, including your internet email address.

The deadline for submission of abstracts for the next issue (#3) 
will be May 10, 1996.  This will be your only reminder!  Directions 
for abstracts follow:
1. Individual contributions should be limited to one single-spaced 
page, except in unusual cases where figures are included.
2. Dot matrix and FAX printouts are unacceptable.
3. Begin each contribution with a title and the names and addresses of 
4. Arrange all text in a block 6 inches (15 cm) wide by 9 inches (23 cm) 
long, titles and authors included.
5. You do not need to be a subscriber to contribute an article, and 
there is no limit to the number of contributions any laboratory or 
subscriber may make.

Please note that these abstracts should not be cited in bibliographies.  
They should be treated as personal communications and cited as such only 
with the consent of the authors. 

We continue to encourage you to submit electronic versions of your 
abstracts in parallel via e-mail or WWW for the electronic WBG, which 
Leon Avery has arranged.  The procedures are given on the preceding 

What follows are the customary reminders of ways in which you can help 
1. Please try to remember to acknowledge in papers the use of any 
strains from the CGC.
2. Please send us reprints of all of your papers; if a paper 
acknowledges the CGC, we would be happy to receive two reprints, because 
we must send one to NIH.
3. Please let us know if you find a bibliographic reference we have 
4. Our first priority in acquiring strains is to acquire a reference 
allele of every identified gene and all available chromosome 
rearrangements.  If you can help us fill gaps in our collection without 
our asking, all the better.
5. We need your strain requests in writing (e-mail is fine), with a 
brief statement of the research or training activity for which the 
strains are intended.

We remind you that you may access various of our data files via gopher
