Good CALLs!

From: A. Bergen
concerns: sponsorprogram HUM-MOLGEN

As of the 1st of Januari 1997, HUM-MOLGEN started a sponsor-program to
maintain, preserve and extend it's services to the community.
Since we are a non-profit organisation run primarily by volunteers, we do
not intend to make money out of HUM-MOLGEN. However, we have some costs
that need to be covered, including administrative support, WWW and E-mail
maintenance, editorial meetings, etc. Support from government bodies for
this type of service is hard to get, primarily because HUM-MOLGEN has no
real primary roots in any one country or continent.
Fortunately, a number of companies, including Qiagen, Cherwell
Scientific, Cilea have entered our sponsor-program, while non-financial
support has, amongst others, been obtained from Oxford University Press,
Karger, Cold Spring Harbour Laboratory Press.
While HUM-MOLGEN will remain an 'exclusive' non-profit and free network,
not covered with logo's, adds etc, we need yet some additional support to
secure the network's immediate future.

So, if you, your company, hospital, or research institute can help out,
please contact us for details of the sponsor-program.

Thanks in advance

Arthur Bergen

Our group has been working on thalassemia and cystic fibrosis for
long time. We have set up different molecular genetic tests, including
 reverse dot blot analysis to detect several of these mutations.
Now, we are interested on developing a reliable test for tubercolosis
and we are looking for a collaboration with groups that are studying
this field.

Thank you,
Dr. A. Maggio

Subject:       Teaching Genetics

Good Afternoon,

In a never-ending attempt to make genetics interesting to medical students,
I find myself in search of various trivia.  Currently, I'm trying to
collect a list of genetic diseases or phenomena that naturally affect
animals.  (This would not include genetically engineered animals like
knock-out mice).  For example: calico cats as a demonstration of
Lyonization, twin-twin tranfusion in cows resulting in immune tolerance, or
hypouricemia in dalmations.  Life Magazine did a nice piece on genetic
diseases in dogs a while back, and I have that.  Does anybody know of any
other diseases/situations/phenomena that I could add to this list?

Dear dr. Bergen,

Could you deliver following message to the subscribers of HUM-MOLGEN

We are looking for cooperation on X-linked West syndrome. We have identified a
candidate region in two families with this syndrome. If anyone has families
in which several brothers are affected with West syndrome, or a boy and his
maternal uncle, we would be very happy to cooperate.

Please contact:

Thank you very much.


If somebody is offering genetic testing for breast cancer, please contact me.
Thank you

From:          Giuseppe Novelli <novelli@UTOVRM.IT>

To Jeff weaver:
The viability of Mono-21 is virtually zero for true monosomy.Most cases
reported as mono-21 are probably mosaics in which the proportion of euploid
cells has been only little investigated. In practice a surviving infant
with mono-21 should be evaluated for the percentage of euploid cells and
viability is greatly related to the proportion of euploid cells and
to the presence of visceral defects.

The following message has recently been sent to the Gateway Kiosk's =
Life-Link Search
Topic Board (http://mcrcr4.med.nyu.edu/~murphp01/lifelink.htm) on the =
Rare Genetic Diseases In Children web site.  As it is particularly
poignant and urgent I pass it on the
members of these lists. If you can help this person in any way, please =
respond directly to her email address below.

I would also recommend to anyone with knowledge of genetic diseases, =
either personally or professionally, to take time to look through the
large list of messages on the Gateway Kiosk.  Most all are sent from
families and individuals in need of support, help and guidance with their
children's special needs.

Thank you and Happy New Year to all.

dear sir :
could you please send me cardiovascular conference -related to
genetics- schedule for 1997?

This  message  was  originally  submitted by  nharker@UNIWA.UWA.EDU.AU  to  the

We are seeking information on the normal levels of serum lactate and
pyruvate post exercise. Does anyone know if there is there an increase in
these levels in healthy people post exercise? In individuals with a
mitochondrial (genetic) disease, what sort of increase could be expected?
Would it be best if we established a normal range in our own lab?

Thanking you in advance,

It's hard to find the answer to a simple question:
Which genes are dominant: brown hair vs blond.
And brown eyes vs. blue or green.

Much thanks for any info, or sources of reference.

I am looking for a reference Barnes,C., Genetic testing of Children,

I think it must be conference proceedings.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
