Since the last Fungal Genetics conference, the FGSC has moved from the University of Kansas Medical Center to a newly remodeled laboratory at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. The FGSC move was largely uneventful and we have offered nearly uninterrupted service to our community. The new lab includes space for new resources housed at the FGSC including the many gene libraries from different genome projects. Among these are Neurospora, Aspergillus, Fusarium, Magnaporthe cosmid, fosmid and/or BAC libraries that are end-sequenced and mapped onto their respective genomes. Additional libraries are expected for genomes being sequenced at the Broad Institute. The FGSC has also added numerous cDNA and genomic library pools from different fungi. With the funding of the Neurospora program project, the FGSC anticipates the addition of all the knock-out mutants as they are generated. Other systematic knock-out proposals have included the FGSC in the planning and proposal stages. As ever, the FGSC depends on the support of the fungal genetics community. If there is something that we could do, please do not hesitate to ask.
