In agreement with the decision reached at the 4th International Barley Genetics Symposium we have prepared a master list of barley genes. It has been stored on discs for the word processor (microcomputer) at the Carlsberg Laboratory and will be reprinted in every future issue of the Barley Genetics Newsletter with the additions and amendments which have been incorporated during the year.

This must be considered as a tentative "working" list of genes designed to 1) present all of the genes and gene symbols ever published, 2) avoid duplications between previous and future symbols, and with the assistance of all barley geneticists, 3) develop a true and useful list of all previous symbols free from duplications and outdated synonyms, 4) determine availability of seed stocks and 5) make additions in an intelligent manner. For all barley workers it will provide a means of quickly determining the genes and alleles of their interest and acquiring seed and new symbols.

It was agreed at the 4th International Barley Genetics Symposium that all symbols assigned to new genes will follow the rules of gene nomenclature adopted at the 3rd Symposium and most recently presented in BGN 11:1-16, 1981. No symbols now in the Master List will be altered without consent of the International Committee on Barley Gene Nomenclature.

We appreciate if you let us know mistakes or changes and amendments required. For a new symbol to be incorporated in the master list we suggest that you contact Dr. Bodil Søgaard at the above address by mail, telex or telephone. She will act as clearing agent to avoid duplication of symbols and she is also willing to coordinate registration of allele designations for individual genes.

We are developing computer programs to store and retrieve all allele designations at the individual loci. It is intended to provide on request computer printouts for the allele collections including information on availability of seeds. For this purpose we are grateful to obtain lists on such allelic series you might have available.

The genes for reaction to Erysiphe graminis hordei (powdery mildew) are described briefly in the master list and a detailed list is given in the supplementary list No. 1.
