important things

Following up on Simplot's potatoes, Monsanto produces marker-free transgenic corn: Shihshieh Huang et al., "Generation of marker-free transgenic maize by regular two-border Agrobacterium transformation vectors," Transgenic Research 13 (October 2004): 451-461.

Attention Bakers: transgenic rye with triple the gluten: Fredy Altpeter et al., "Stable expression of 1Dx5 and 1Dy10 high-molecular-weight glutenin subunit genes in transgenic rye drastically increases the polymeric glutelin fraction in rye flour," Plant Molecular Biology 54 (April 2004): 783-792.

The Lees hit the itinerant flavor sales trail in the Times. Followed by extra-bizarre "arsenal"; funny, I just saw saltimbocca at one of the hottest restaurants on the east coast.

Speaking of which, there is apparently a pay-what-you-think-it's-worth restaurant in London as well as Berlin [via tfs via kottke].

Finally, the Old Hag is new again.

Addendum: One of the fascinating links that Firefox ate last week before I could serve you was a WRI report called Designing genes: How can genetic engineering serve U.S. midwestern agricultural sustainability?
