-1Bio Lab Lecture Notes: Plant Mutations Lab - E. Coli plasmid transformation and gene expression. Antibiotic selection, bioluminescence, melanins. - Arabidopsis thaliana molecular genetic analysis. Mutants, transgenics, etc. Model Genetic Organisms: Organisms used to study processes in development, physiology, behavior, reproduction, disease, gene regulation, signal transduction, etc - small - short generation - lots of progeny - cheap to feed and keep - small genome (sequence) - low ploidy - cross - transform

Coli (and lambda) Yeast Danio (zebra fish) Caenorhabditis - Nematode Dictyostelium - slime mold Arabidopsis thaliana- very small- lots of progeny- short generation (30 days)- smallest genome (125 million bases)- easy to grow under many conditions- easy to mutate and do genetics (simple diploid)- easy to transform- has roots, leaves, stems, etc. Create mutations with chemicals, x-ray, UV, sloppy polymerase....
