President’s Report

The results of the election of officers (Board of Directors, Committee Chairs and Section Officers) are in and I would like to thank all who offered their services to the society. All of these positions are very important to the society for its governance and it is the successful completion of these functions that make the SIVB a successful society. The transitions to the newly elected officers will occur at the Friday night Board of Directors meeting just before the annual meeting in San Diego.

At Corteva AgriscienceTM, a research team recently developed a new transformation method that utilizes the maize transcription factors Babyboom (BBM) and Wuschel2 (WUS2) to stimulate direct transgenic embryo formation and plant regeneration.
