The Arabidopsis Book is edited by Chris Somerville and Elliot Meyerowitz; co-edited by Jeff Dangl and Mark Stitt. An Open Access electronic book, The Arabidopsis Book (TAB), is an attempt at a new mode of communication between researchers and a new model for scientific publishing. TAB in its initial stage is a compilation of over 100 invited chapters, each reviewing in detail an important and interesting aspect of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana, with reference to what is known in other plants and in other kingdoms.

TAB is available only via the Internet and will be available free of charge. The American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) is providing funds for the mounting and maintenance of the book on the Internet as a public service. TAB is available from both ASPB and BioOne.
