Dear all,
I am currently setting up a model system using Arabidopsis in agar to
study considerations in the ecology and physiology of heterogeneous
nutrient conditions and their effects.  My plates are vertically
positioned and a few cms of agar cut out of the top (as per Forde &
Zheng).  Could anyone tell me the best way to transfer seeds to these
cut agar surfaces so they grow across the agar (or do seedlings have to
be transferred for this type of growth)?

Thanks in anticipation,
Janette Leonard
