Researchers from around the world working in the field and related disciplines discuss the roles of proteolysis in plant self- incompatibility, the epigenetic regulation of transposable elements in plants, proteins and interactions, expression quantitative trait loci analysis, plants' sensing and responding to excess light, phloem transport, cellulosic biofuels, jasmonate action, selaginella, the circadian system in higher plants, photorespiratory metabolism, environmental effects on the spatial and temporal patterns of leaf and root growth, genetically engineered plants and foods, and other topics.
BEHAVIORAL AND EXPRESSION QUANTITATIVE TRAIT LOCI FOR SELECTING CANDIDATE GENES One method to identify the most promising candidate genes among the plethora of genes detected during initial microarray screening involves filtering the list of candidate genes by looking for overlap between those areas in the genome that control the phenotype of interest (i.
