This addendum is to inform potential applicants of additional information on 
the model systems in RFA-DK-03-018.  In the section of the RFA titled, 
RESEARCH OBJECTIVES (subsection, Objectives and Scope) the following 
information should be included:

Genetic studies in other species of the genera Caenorhabditis, Drosophila, and 
Danio will also be considered responsive to this RFA, provided these species 
are amenable to study with the same array of experimental tools available for 
the model species C. elegans, D. melanogaster, or D. rerio, respectively, and 
that Principal Investigator can document that a draft genome sequence of the 
proposed species will be available by October 1, 2005.

All other aspects of the RFA remain unchanged.

The full text of the RFA, which was published October 29, 2003, can be
