Transcriptional responses of Arabidopsis thaliana plants to As (V) stress
Microarray data suggest that As (V) induces genes involved in response to oxidative stress and represses transcription of genes induced by phosphate starvation, thereby providing new putative gene targets for future research.

Microarray analysis was conducted on Arabidopsis thaliana grown in Murashige and Skoog media containing steady-state levels of 0.5 mM RDX or 2.0 μM TNT to study the effect of these compounds on its transcriptional profile, and results were consistent with existing theory for xenobiotic metabolism in plants.

Sustainable Use of Biotechnology for Bioenergy Feedstocks
This Forum discusses the sustainability of herbaceous feedstocks relative to the regulation of biotechnology with regards to likely genetically engineered traits and recommends mechanisms that ensure biocontainment of transgenes be instituted, especially for perennial grasses.
Development of a protein phosphatase-based assay for the detection of phosphatase inhibitors in crude whole cell and animal extracts.
Engineered selective plant male sterility through pollen-specific expression of the EcoRI restriction endonuclease.
The expression of the restriction endonuclease EcoRI under the control of the tomato pollen-specific LAT52 promoter is an effective method for generating selective male sterility in Nicotiana tabacum (tobacco).
Genetic combining ability of glucoraphanin level and other horticultural traits of broccoli
Results indicate that a given inbred will combine with others to make hybrids with relatively predictable levels of head glucoraphanin as well as, other important horticultural traits.
Developmental evolution of flowering plant pollen tube cell walls: callose synthase (CalS) gene expression patterns
The finding that CalS5 is the predominant callose synthase in pollen tubes of both early-diverging and model system angiosperms is an indicator of the homology of their novel callosic pollen tube walls and callose plugs.
Direct evidence of predation by aquatic, predatory Sciomyzidae (Diptera, Acalyptrata) on freshwater snails from natural populations
