An easy way to find out if a subject has been aired previously on the
Arabidopsis bulletin board is to Search through the newsgroups archive. 

This can be done from the AtDB home page at URL:


Simply click on the "BioSci Archive" button and enter, e.g., "microwave",
as the search term. This brings back several hits, one of which is from
August of last year and includes the following sentence: 

"Anyone who is interested in the protocol and a lengthy discussion about it
on this newsgroup should look it up in [A]AtDB by typing the search query
"microwave"." !
