Janet has emailed me about the work, but I would like to broaden the
discussion here (rather than pursue it via email) because I think it is
a very interesting topic.
Bionet.plants is a discussion forum and I want to encourage the
development of discussions here about plant biology rather than just
use the group as a vehicle for making initial contacts that disappear
off into private email exchanges.
So, can you tell me how the _touch_ genes are expressed?
Re: response to music: apparently one rock group boasts that it's music
registered on the Richter scale at a seismology observatory during one
of their concerts in Germany - it depends what you call 'music' ;-)
