Claren Thomas Plant Science Don Lee Experiment 2 Write-Up Title: The role of genetic variation on pigments in plant growth. Author: Claren Thomas, student in Plant Science 131 at University of Nebraska Introduction and Hypothesis: The experiment was designed to test whether the seeds from an ear of corn would produce plants with the same chlorophyll, apex to growth point length, and leaf length. I believe that the seeds would produce very similar but, not exactly the same chlorophyll, apex to growth point, and leaf length in the plants it produces. This would show that the genetic variation of the seeds from the same ear of corn results in nearly the same physical traits. Materials and Methods: To perform this experiment you will need many materials. This includes 6 yellow corn seed and enough vermiculate to fill one small 8 oz. Styrofoam cup. Vermiculate will then be poured to fill ¾ of the cup and then the seeds will be placed on the vermiculate. Vermiculate will then be poured in the cup to cover up the seeds. The vermiculate should be poured to the top of
