Plant Molecular Biology 38: v–vi, 1998. On the ﬁrst of October 1998, Prof. Robert A. Schilperoort, the founding editor and Editor-in-Chief of Plant Molecular Biology will resign from the Editorial Board. The Publishers and the International Society for Plant Molecular Biology are very pleased to announce that Prof. Stephen H. Howell, Cornell University (USA) will be the new Editor-in-Chief. In the late 70s and early 80s very good prospects emerged for the development of plant molecular biology research. In particular M.D. Chilton’s work proving for the ﬁrst time Agrobacterium transfer of DNA into plants and that of J. Schell and R.A. Schilperoort on transformation contributed substantially to the further advancement of plant molecular biology research. Based on these important breakthroughs it could be expected that plant molecular biology research would become increasingly important as well as become a research discipline in its own right. When representatives of Kluwer Academic Publishers (imprint Martinus Nijhoff/Junk Publishers) and Rob Schilperoort ﬁrst met in 1979, Rob very convincingly predicted the exponential growth of this ﬁeld of science. Based on cautious market research this prediction was conﬁrmed as well as the potential need for a new scientiﬁc journal Plant Molecular Biology. Consequently, Plant Molecular
