About the cover: Genetic studies reveal the essential role of BAK1 in the BRI1-mediated BR signaling pathway. Structure analyses reported recently by two independent groups suggest that the extracellular domain of BAK1 may bind directly to BR and activate the BRI1 signalling. For details, please read the article written by He et al. (pp. 1264–1270).
