Transgenic plant projects

I am interested in the uses of transgenic technology
to produce new/useful/wierd/interesting plants.  I know about some projects
such as the tobacco plants that express luciferase and Bacillus thuringiensis
toxins used as intrinsic insecticides.  However I am on the look out for other,
perhaps less well known, examples.  Anything strange/quirky would be greatly

Any references or pointers or just "well I thought I saw something about..."
is what I am after.  Post to bionet.plants or e-mail me and I will post a 
summary when appropriate.

Thanks in advance for your help.
