Five plant scientists have just been elected to the membership in the
prestigious National Academy of Sciences, USA according the press release
from NAS (http://www.nas.edu). They are:

Dr. Brian Stasckawicz, UC  Berkeley
Dr. Sue Wessler, University of Georgia
Dr. Jan Zeevaart, Michigan State University
Dr. Maarten Koornneef, Wageningen Agric. Univ. (the Netherlands)
Dr. Bryan Harrison, Scottish Crop Research Institute

Dr. Roger Tsein (UC San Diego), whose research on green flourescent protein
(GFP), although not on plants, has helped plant research tremendously has
also been elected.

I congratulate these scientists for the great honor bestowed on them by
their peers!
