Dear Readers,

Towards the first four years of the 21st century, the author worked as an associate in the Lehle Seeds Company, located in the Round Rock area in the suburb of Austin city. Apart from sowing seeds of different brands and mutant lines of Arabidopsis seeds, raising plants, harvesting seeds, storing and cataloging them, his job was to summarize in detail selected scientific articles published in many important journals such as Trends in Plant Science, Nature, Trends in Plant Biology, Trends in Plant Biotechnology, Current Opinion in Plant Biology, Plant Physiology, PNAS. After the articles were thoroughly edited by the MD of the Company, Dr. Fred Lehle, the edited version of the articles was posted in the Company’s website. During he tenure of the author’s service there from 2000 to 2003, he summarized some 85 articles. They were transferred to the personal website of the author with the permission of the Editor. The original website (http://www.arabidopsis.com/) has been kept in contact. In other words the articles listed here are now available both in my personal – and the Company’s website

The articles shown are all alphabetically arranged. These review articles present a brief picture of the trends of research in various facets of biotechnology, genetics and physiology in the beginning of the present century. Below is given the list of these articles with links to each individual article. Clicking the article of interest will retrieve it.
