The Barley Genetics Newsletter appears to be successfully launched.
The quality of the contribution to Volume 1 ensured its favorable reception.
Contributions to Volume 2 are even more impressive. For this, the Editorial
Committee expresses its gratitude to the various contributors.
Suggestions for improvement of the Barley Genetics Newsletter will again
be appreciated. It is our concept that the Barley Genetics Newsletter should
be kept as informal as possible. Its primary funtion should be to serve
as a forum for expression of ideas and information before they are ready
for publication in formal journals. We again solicit submission of communications
concerning barley genetics to the Barley Genetics Newsletter.
The information in this Newsletter is of an informal nature to stimulate
thought and to exchange ideas among barley geneticists. Before quoting
any statements in the BGN, contact the contributor(s) involved, with the
following exception decided at the Second International Barley Genetics
Symposium at Washington State University, Pullman, July 1969:
"With regard to symbols and stock designations, the Newsletter (BGN)
concerned with symbols, stock lists, and linkage maps may be cited without
Financial support for publication and distribution of this issue of
Barley Genetics Newsletter by the following agencies are greatly appreciated.

Historical linkage map of chromosome 2 in barley is reproduced from
the original map prepared by D. W. Robertson (Robertson, D. W. 1939, Genetics
of barley. Jour. Am. Soc. Agron. 31:273-282). Because of insufficient data
available at that time, three maps were prepared.
