Meet the Experts

In the October issue of IVR, the In Vitro Report co-editors suggested we introduce a recurring article on “Meet the Experts”. This new article will feature members from the In Vitro Animal Cell Sciences and Plant Biotechnology Sections of the Society. The featured SIVB experts will answer a set of standard questions that address topics such as the member’s research expertise and career path. The goals of this new feature are to provide student members of the Society with information about the diverse types of jobs that are available in the life sciences, and to promote networking and collaboration...

Journal Highlights

Somaclonal Variation and Stability of GUS Gene Expression in Transgenic Agapanthus (Agapanthus praecox ssp. orientalis) Plants at the Flowering Stage Agapanthus (Agapanthus praecox ssp. orientalis), a liliaceous perennial, is cultivated as an ornamental plant because of its beautiful, blue-violet to white flowers. Transgenic agapanthus plants containing the GUS reporter gene under the control of CaMV35S promoter have previously been produced via Agrobacterium-mediated genetic transformation. These transgenic plants have been cultivated for 5 yr after transplantation to pots, and 12 transgenic plants derived from five independent lines were subjected to morphological characterization, and examination of the ploidy level, pollen fertility...

Relemed – A New Online Search Engine for Researchers

Charlottesville, Va. – March 14, 2007, Researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have created a new online search engine- -that provides medical professionals, researchers and the general public with a more efficient and targeted way to search PubMed for the latest, most relevant medical literature to answer medical queries. ReleMed-short for Relevant Medicine-is not a general health site. It doesn’t provide answers or suggest guidelines for specific medical problems. Rather, based on your search terms, ReleMed retrieves the most relevant recent references published about a problem or a combination of conditions, versus any article in...
