Interested In Contributing?
Send your notes for the Maize Genetics Cooperation Newsletter now, anytime before January 1. Your MNL Notes will go on the Web verbatim promptly, and will be prepared for printing in the annual issue. Be concise, not formal, but include specific data, tables, observations and methods. Send your notes as attachments or as the text of an email addressed to [email protected] (we will acknowledge receipt, and will contact you further if necessary). If email is not feasible, please mail a double-spaced, letter-quality copy of your note, preferably with a disk containing the electronic version.
Please follow the simple style used in the current issue (city /institution title /--authors; tab paragraphs; give citations with authors' initials --e.g., Maizer, BA et al., J Hered 35:35, 1995, or supply a bibliography). Figures, charts and tables should be compact and camera-ready, and supplied in electronic form (jpg or gif) if possible. To separate columns in tables, please tab instead of using spaces, to ensure quality tabulations on the web. Your MNL Notes will go on the Web verbatim promptly, and will be edited and prepared for printing in the annual issue. Mailing address:
