Image of the Week:

from the website of PNAS: "Cover photograph: Gravity causes localized expression of auxin in plant roots. Plants grown on an angled platform show increased accumulation of growth-promoting auxin on the lower side of the root (green staining). Plant roots will grow in the direction of increased auxin expression." Refers to citation #1, left.
