Thanks to the great mentoring of Sergio Florez, and the persistence of Morgan Shires to follow up the extended effort to show the ability to use this rather sophisticated induction system to activate transcription factors for somatic embryogenesis. The paper is available in Biotechnology Letters as Open Source thanks to the Gates Foundation: Inducible somatic embryogenesis in Theobroma cacaoachieved using the DEX-activatable transcription factor-glucocorticoid receptor fusion.
