Re: Origin of Sports Discussion


Hi Bill and Hosta Sports investigators/researchers,
I can't remember whether I posted this link, but from what I can tell,
this Symposium will address a number of questions at the molecular
biological level re: post-transcriptional gene expression and probably
shed much light on the origin of Sports, though indirectly.

http://molebio.iastate.edu/~gfst/phomepg.html   Since the creation of
the Plant Sciences Institute at ISU, the pace of research at ISU has
picked up dramatically.  And of course, genetics is hot, hot, hot.

I'm enjoying this area of investigation like a kid at water world...
It's a lot more fun than I should be allowed to have but hopefully an
increased understanding will be a result.  I certainly have a much
better understanding of why the pod parent is the determining source for
variegation.  But I'm still working on an answer to Jim Hawes' question
as to why tetraploid plants would be "better".  That question of "why"
can cause all kinds of frustration until one has an answer which
actually DOES resolve the question, not being a conjecture but instead
being a valid and reliable explanation of the question at hand.
