The National Twin Register Sri Lanka was launched on 28/4/97.

To our knowledge this is the first population based Twin Register in
the developing world.

Details about the register is available at URL

Contact us if you are interested in twin research and would like to
explore the possibility of undertaking projects or collaborations.

Dear Sir or Madam:
        I am a student at Virginia's Thomas Jefferson High School for
Science and Technology.  I and a partner, Pradeep Nair, are
conducting an extensive research project on the genetic disorder
albinism.  One of the project requirements is to exchange two informative
messages with a scientist currently doing research related to our
project.  If you are able and willing to participate in this brief
interview it would be most appreciated.  My partner and I are very
curious about the unusual symptoms of the rare Hermansky-Pudlak
Syndrome.  We would also like to know more about the many visual
abnormalities which result from all types of albinism.
Any information is appreciated.
                                Sincerely,
                                      Debbie Stanley

 Dear Colleagues,
Is anyone outside the Jackson lab maintaining a list
of floxed genes, or available mice expressing floxed genes that can be
used for tissue specific knock-outs? Any information would be gratefully
received.
Thankyou!

Hi Folks,

I am looking for any information on
Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON),
or people/institutes currently researching into LHON
and related (Mitochondrial) topics.

I am a trustee of the LHON Trust, a UK charity
 dedicated to gathering and distributing
information on this rare condition, and encouraging
research into it.

I am maintaining a WWW site dedicated to LHON and
related topics to further improve the spread of information
world-wide, and have had patients and their families
contact me from several countries already.  Any comments
on this site, especially suggested additional sources
of information, would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Jim Leeder

Inquiry.
I was recently consulted by a family with an isolated case of
pseudoxanthoma elasticum.  In reviewing the litterature and OMIM I
was struck by how vague the information was on mode of inheritance and
risks for other members of the family. I would therefore like to contact
medical and molecular geneticists with special expertise in this condition
for further information.

Sincerely yours,

Dear Sir,
         I wonder if our site (Resources for Molecular Cytogenetics),
could be of interest to HumMol group:

Dear Colleagues

This is to request information on a dermatological problem. Can
anyone provide more information on LICHEN PLANUS. It is a skin disease and
the cause is not known. It seems to start as a tiny red patch sometimes
the size of pinhead sometimes bigger. It scratches initially and after a few
days it stops scratching, and the patch turns black. The mark stays for a
long timeon the skin. I am particularly curious about knowing what causes this
disease. Also if anyone knows a cure for it. Also how many people are
affected by it, and hoe does it vary geographically?

Thankyou
please respond to the email address given below
