A gene expression map of Arabidopsis thaliana development
Examining the expression patterns of large gene families, it is found that they are often more similar than would be expected by chance, indicating that many gene families have been co-opted for specific developmental processes.
Genome-Wide Insertional Mutagenesis of Arabidopsis thaliana
Genome-wide analysis of the distribution of integration events revealed the existence of a large integration site bias at both the chromosome and gene levels, and insertion mutations were identified in genes that are regulated in response to the plant hormone ethylene.
Control of leaf morphogenesis by microRNAs
The JAW locus is identified, which produces a microRNA that can guide messenger RNA cleavage of several TCP genes controlling leaf development, indicating that microRNA-mediated control of leaf morphogenesis is conserved in plants with very different leaf forms.
Genome-wide association study of 107 phenotypes in Arabidopsis thaliana inbred lines

Integration of Spatial and Temporal Information During Floral Induction in Arabidopsis
Data suggest that FT primarily controls the timing of flowering of Arabidopsis, and that integration of temporal and spatial information is mediated in part by the bZIP transcription factor FD, which is already expressed at the shoot apex before floral induction.
Activation tagging in Arabidopsis.
Activation tagging using T-DNA vectors that contain multimerized transcriptional enhancers from the cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) 35S gene has been applied to Arabidopsis plants, and it is shown that overexpressed genes are almost always found immediately adjacent to the inserted CaMV 35S enhancers.
