Tansley Review: 50 years of Arabidopsis research

Last updated: 26 Oct, 2015

It is 50 years since the first International Conference on Arabidopsis Research, and a Tansley review, published in New Phytologist, celebrates this anniversary by presenting an analysis of the 54,033 articles published on the model plant since 1965 and highlighting several important plant biology discoveries made with it. In the video below, Nicholas Provart introduces the interactive explorer of the Arabidopsis literature database that he and co-authors created as part of their review, and touches on some of these ‘firsts’.
