General Notes

  1. Stocks 1-100 were produced prior to 1983 and descriptions are limited to deviations from the wild-type, which in this case is Stock 7.
  2. Stocks 500-599 also 700 and above, are normal stock lines produced after 1983 and are again compared to Stock 7 as the wild-type.
  3. Stocks 600-699 were produced by transposon mutagenesis and are compared to either Stock 75 or 98 in the description, depending upon their progenitor.
  4. Mutants are listed in numerical order followed by their genotype and, if known, the transposon responsible for the mutation.
  5. K7 = Family number followed by plant number, thus K7.9 = Family 7 plant number 9. This is followed by the year grown at J.I.
  6. The wild-type is on the left of the photograph and the mutant on the right.

The nomenclature used is that of classical Antirrhinum genetics. In the year 2000, at a meeting in Leeds UK, it was changed to conform with that of Arabidopsis nomenclature to make it easier for students writing their thesis and also when comparing data in scientific papers.

Thanks are due to:-

   * Andrew Davis and Peter Scott for carrying out the photography.
   * Andrew Davis for scanning the slides.
   * Mike Harvey for developing the searchable image database.
   * Tobias Kieser who set up the computer programme allowing the amalgamation of the scanned photographs with the text and produced the acrobat files.
   * Lucy Copsey for her expert help throughout the project.
   * Peter Walker and Phillip Theobald for growing the plants.
