More than 2000 plant scientists dug in here from 24 June to 1 July for two back-to-back meetings: the 9th International Conference on Arabidopsis Research and the annual meeting of the American Society of Plant Physiologists. While some researchers put the wealth of data from genome projects to creative uses such as making vitamin-fortified plants, others use it to enhance work on such questions as how flowers form.
