Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Within the framework of the Community's biotechnology research programmes, groups of contractors were brought together to constitute ELWWs, with a view to facilitating the rapid circulation and exchange of information, data and materials, and increasing mobility among research staff. This brochure illustrates work done as a result of an ELWW initiative for tomato transposon tagging. The aim of the project was to isolate from plants (in particular tomato plants) the genes corresponding to interesting genetic traits, which have subtle or powerful effects in the plant as a whole and which encode unknown proteins. The method most relevant for tomato, and other plants with genomes larger than that of Arabidopsis, was that of transposon tagging. Current research efforts are described, and the contact addresses for the main participants listed.
