SeedGenes Project
The NSF 2010 Project on Essential Gene Functions in Arabidopsis Seed Development deals with genes that give a seed phenotype when disrupted by mutation. The long-term goal is to establish a comprehensive dataset of essential genes. The updated project database (December, 2007) presents information on 358 genes and 605 mutants. More than 60% of these mutants have been analyzed in the Meinke laboratory (Stillwater, OK). Genes scheduled for future release are listed at the Pending Additions link on the Access Page at the SeedGenes Project.
