  In answer to the following question:


Dear netters,
does anyone know of mutants with altered peduncle characteristics;
ie the bit that joins the silique to the main stem. In
particular has any one heard of or seen mutants in which the angle
between the peduncle and main stem is wildly altered.
many thanks to all

  Mutations in the gene brevipedicellus (bp, chromosome 4-9.6) result in a short
pedicel which points downward.
