Collection of Reflections on Plant Cell Classics
In 2019, The Plant Cell celebrates its 30th anniversary. In recognition of this milestone, the journal solicted a series of reflections by members of the editorial board and others. Authors were asked to write about one or more memorable and exciting articles published in The Plant Cell, and how this work has influenced our current understanding. Follow #ThePlantCellebration30 on Twitter for additonal updates.
