Elliot Meyerowitz and Christopher Somerville

2006 Balzan Prize for Plant Molecular Genetics

For their joint efforts in establishing Arabidopsis as a model organism for plant molecular genetics. This has far reaching implications for plant science at both the fundamental level and in potential applications.

Joint publications

Among the joint publications of Meyerowitz and Somerville, the following may be mentioned:

– Arabidopsis Monograph 27, edited by Meyerowitz, E.M. and C.R. Somerville. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press (1994)

–    The Arabidopsis Book, edited by Meyerowitz, E.M. and C.R. Somerville, American Society of Plant Biologists, Rockville, MD (2002) doi: 10.1199/tab.0009,

The Arabidopsis Book (TAB) is a new mode of communication between researchers and a new model for scientific publishing. Over 50 chapters of this electronic book have been compiled, each reviewing an important and interesting aspect of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana in detail, with reference to what is known in other plants and in other kingdoms.
