This is a group of 37,800 lines for forward screening assembled from
the first T-DNA population of the Arabidopsis Knockout Facility. This
stock is distributed as 168 pools of 225 lines each. These T-DNA
pools were generated by the Agrobacterium vacuum infiltration
technique using a derivative of the pD991 vector from Dr. Thomas
Jack. The genetic background for this stock is Ws-2 (CS2360, included

2. 9,650 T-DNA lines in C24 background from Drs. R. Bressan and S.
Yokoi, Purdue Univeristy as pools of 100
Included are 9,650 activation tag T-DNA lines, as 96 pools of 100
lines and 1 pool of 50 lines. Vacuum infiltration transformation was
conducted on C24 plants with the pSKI15 vector from Dr. D. Weigel
into which a luciferase-stress expression construct was inserted.
The parental, C24 line (CS906) is include with this stock.
