The plant hormones
website was set up initially at Long Ashton Research Station an institute of the
BBSRC. Long Ashton will be closing in March 2003 so the Plant-Hormones site has
been moved to a new commercial service.
The website provides general information on
plant hormones and links to the plant-hormones discussion list. This list has
been set up on the National Academic Mailing List Service JISCMAIL.
This list has been set
up as a freely accessible electronic communication forum for use by
plant-hormone scientists. The list is intended to promote communication between
professionals in the plant-hormone field. Discussion topics should include
gibberellins, auxins, cytokinins,abscisic acid, etc.
All aspects of research
may be discussed; synthesis extraction, purification, analysis, enzymology,
molecular biology, hormone action etc. Requests for help on particular aspects
may also be posted to the list as well as requests for standards, spectra,
identification of spectra etc.
The list may also be
used for announcement of meetings, calls for papers and posters, visits of
scientists to a particular
