After many years of continued effort, we can now also accept payment by credit card. Only VISA and MASTER are possible, but that's better than before! The details of the procedure are described in FAQ entry No 25

A total of 98 newly confirmed GABI-Kat lines have been donated to NASC. This donation batch contains 1.447 individual T3 seed bags (98 T3-sets). In total, 7.626 T3-sets of which each represents a single GABI-Kat line have been donated so far.

The delays in delivery of seed of confirmed lines and in Email replies to questions sent to the info mailbox caused by holidays are being almost resolved. Quite some seed will leave the lab this week.

A total of 200 newly confirmed GABI-Kat lines have been donated to NASC. These two donation batches represent 200 T3-sets and 1.450 plus 1.296 = 2.746 individual seed bags. In total, 7.528 T3-sets of which each represents a single GABI-Kat line have been donated so far. These lines cover 7.624 confirmed insertion alleles.

Since a part of the GABI-Kat staff goes to vacation, delivery of seed might be a bit delayed between end of July and middle of August. The delay may also extend to answering Emails send to the info mailbox, as well as to taking up new seed requests.

Since last month, the total number of GABI-Kat lines donated to NASC has been increased to 7.328. In these lines, there are 7.423 confirmed insertion alleles. The respective allele-specific confirmation sequences are available via SimpleSearch. You can check this page as an example; to reach this page for your favorite gene, start with a gene ID (AGI code) or line ID (e.g. 048E04) query on the SimpleSearch start page. Between June 30th and July 16th, 4 donation batches representing 399 T3-sets were sent to NASC for distribution.

A total of 121 newly confirmed GABI-Kat lines have been donated to NASC. This donation batch represents 121 T3-sets and 1.699 individual seed bags. In total, 6.929 T3-sets of which each represents a single GABI-Kat line have been donated so far.

The GABI-Kat grant has been extended until end of June 2011. Thanks to PTJ / BMBF (German Ministry of Education and Research) for funding, and to the GABI SAB (Scientific Advisory Board) for support.
