B. Resources and data generated in the project.
1. Overexpression constructs and transgenic lines for Arabidopsis WRKY genes generated from the project are listed in Table 2 (PDF) and are available upon request. The homozygous Salk mutants for Arabidopsis WRKY genes will be donated to ABRC at the Ohio State University by the end of October 2005 and inquiries about their availability should be sent to ABRC.
2. Expression of pathogen-induced Arabidopsis WRKY genes in the eds and pad mutants are available on the project website (Figure 1 PDF).
