  Dear Colleagues,

  Under the leadership of current editor Maarten Chrispeels and future
  editor Natasha Raikhel, we have instituted a new feature of PLANT
  PHYSIOLOGY called 'Breakthrough Technologies'. Our goal is to highlight
  powerful new approaches that are changing the way in which we dissect our
  favorite processes in plants. We are eager to publish high impact papers
  in all technical areas of science relating to plant growth and
  development, ranging from ecophysiology to genomics. While the focus will
  be on research articles, we will also publish reviews of young and
  promising areas of technology, and occasional opinion pieces.
  Those of you who saw the cover of the April 2000 issue of PLANT PHYSIOLOGY
  are aware of our most recent Breakthrough Technologies paper: 'Activation
  Tagging in Arabidopsis', from collaborative work between the Chory, Lamb,
  Weigel and Yanofsky groups. The inaugural paper in this series
  'Large-scale screening for phytochrome-regulated genes', from the group of
  Dr. Masaki Furuya, was also published as a cover article in the January
  2000 issue. We plan to continue to give these cutting-edge papers high
  visibility in the journal.

  Over the coming months you will see more examples of these papers,
  including an offering on optical coherence microscopy from June Medford
  and colleagues in the May issue (pp. 3-15), and in June results of in
  vitro studies of mutagenesis by chimeric RNA-DNA oligonucleotides from
  Eric Kmiec, Greg May, and co-workers.

  I hope that you will enjoy and benefit from these papers over the coming
  years. More importantly, please send us your 'Breakthrough Technologies'
  papers so that we can give them the high visibility that they deserve. If
  you have any questions, or wish to submit a paper, please contact me so
  that we can get your work into the publication pipeline.
