We would be delighted to provide seed of some mutants for this cause.
Please let us know if there are any mutants that you have in mind that
would be best; see our catalog at
<http://w3.ag.uiuc.edu/maize-coop/stockcat.html> and images of mutants at:
<http://www.agron.missouri.edu/Coop/images/MOM.html>.  Or, would you prefer
that we select some to send?

Best regards,

		-Marty Sachs, Director
