History of Arabidopsis research

I am in the early stages of researching the history of Arabidopsis research
for a popular book that I'm writing on experimental organisms and the part
they've played in the history of biology. The intention is to have a series
of fairly brief chapters on a selection of organisms, looking at the reasons
they became important and some of the key problems they helped to solve. The
book will be aimed at non-specialists, pitched roughly at general
reader/undergraduate level.

If anyone who reads this list has any suggestions as to what I should read,
archives I should visit and/or people I should interview with respect to
Arabidopsis, I would be most grateful to hear from them. Please email me
directly at jje21 at cam.ac.uk rather than clogging up this newsgroup.

Many thanks, Jim
