>What does the plasmid transfer do to the plant? (A.t.)
Don't know a list of what plants are infected by At but can scrape together a bit about how it 
works. The plasmid contains (I think) genes for auxin and cytikinins that express unregulated 
in the infected tissue. The ethylene production is likely linked to the auxin production. Any 
decent mol bio or plant phys book should give you the details you need.
