Introduction ... Database ... Results ... Epitaphs ... Exit


Back in the summer of 1992, a small band of dedicated scientists embarked on a bold and pioneering project codenamed: Tommy. Their aim was to characterise the DNA (Date, Number and Amount) of fruit from a single tomato plant. This small band of dedicated professionals succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Cruelly, many of the Tommy research team were 'moved on' by their employer before they could enjoy the fruits of their research. But now, for the first time, the data from this complex project has been put into the public domain so that scientists everywhere may benefit from, and contribute to, this painstaking work.

Some of the results from the project are shown here.

If you would like to contribute to the Tommy archive please send us any insightful statistical analysis.
