Five plant scientists have been just elected to the membership in the
prestigious National Academy of Sciences, USA according the press
from NAS (http://www.nas.edu). They are:

Dr. Brian Stasckawicz, UC  Berkeley
Dr. Sue Wessler, University of Georgia
Dr. Jan Zeevaart, Michigan State University
Dr. Maarten Koornneef, Wageningen Agric. Univ. (the Netherlands)
Dr. Bryan Harrison, Scottish Crop Research Institute

Dr. Roger Tsein (UC San Diego), whose research on green flourescent
protein (GFP), although not on plants, has helped plant research
tremendously has also been elected.

I congratulate these scientists for the great honor bestowed on them by
their peers!
