Scientists at Yale University and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory employ "gene trapping" to identify many genes involved in the regulation of flower development. This is the first large-scale gene trap study on flower development, and provides extensive information on many genes likely to have critical roles in this essential stage of plant reproduction. This research, conducted with grant support from the National Science Foundation, is an excellent example of how modern molecular biology...


Word of the Day
pawl
  • A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
