President’s Report

Synergy, Collaborations and Shifting Landscapes “Do one thing everyday that scares you.” Eleanor Roosevelt As a nation, Thanksgiving signifies the approach of the holiday season and a time to reflect on what we have and what is important in our lives. There are thoughts of those fighting and dying in foreign countries to defend against terrorism and secure global peace. On a personal level, there are reflective thoughts of family, friends and our own angst of meeting yet another December and January grant deadline in the face of budget cuts and dwindling scientific resources. Many of you have made...

Invertebrate Fellow Award

The Invertebrate Fellow Award recognizes members of the SIVB who have been active members for at least 10 years. A Fellow has made outstanding contributions in their area of specialization or discipline to include research, teaching, and administration in public, government, academic, or private industry activities. This was the first Invertebrate Fellow Award to be presented by the SIVB. Dr. Marcia J. Loeb and her many contributions to the field of invertebrate cell culture, during the last 40 years, are worthy of recognition. She has been not only an excellent endocrinologist and reproductive biologist of insects, but also a...

ExPlants

Mary Ann Lila, past-president of SIVB and Professor & Assistant Dean for Research, College of ACES, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and her lab team are focused on the biomedicinal properties of berry fruits, and in particular the effects of stress (ecotype) on the potency of the phytochemicals in the fruit flesh. This past summer, Mary Ann, her daughter and Tristan Kraft, a graduate student, had the unique opportunity to test their hypothesis with berries growing under some of the most extreme stress conditions – the weathered lava flows on the big island of Hawaii. The field research included...

Journal Highlights

Targeting Transgene Expression in Plant Transformation Genetically engineering plants with selected genes of the scientist’s choice is a powerful tool that has benefited basic research, agriculture and commercial endeavors. It has also produced an apparent firestorm of controversy as plants created in the laboratory have moved out into the field. Scientists have tried to address the controversial aspects of genetic engineering by modifying and creating new, highly functional solutions that they can apply to their engineering projects. An important part of their solution is the development of a broad spectrum of promoters that target these transgenes spatially and temporally...
