FAST PLANTS ( Brassica rapa) Zehra K. Timur 16.10.2017
Model organism WHY? a short life cycle easy to grow easy to mate high reproductive capacity small or well-characterized genomes easy to manipulate NAMES: the bacterium ( Escherichia coli) yeast ( Saccharomyces cerevisiae ) the fungus ( Neurospora) fruitfly ( Drosophila melanogaster ) zebrafish ( Danio rerio ) roundworm ( Caenorhabditis elegans ) mouse ( Mus musculus ) fast plant ( Arabidopsis Thaliana) In science, a model is a simplified system that is accessible and easily manipulated to show the basic operating principles that are nearly the same in all living things .
Fast Plants short life cycle ideal growing conditions of continuous light, water, nutrition, plants will produce harvestable seeds approximately 40 days after planting Sepal part of the flower of flowering plants Petal modified leaves that surround the reproductive parts of flowers Stigma receives pollen at pollination Anther pollen producing part of a flower
Leaves green and healty Stem can be green or purple depending on including pigments Length of life cycle: 35-45 days Days to flowering: 14 Average plant height at day 14: 15 cm Standart Fast Plants
Mutant Plant Types Yellow green leaf Non purple stem yellow-green leaf Variegated Rosette-Dwarf Tall Petite Purple Stem
Yellow-green leaf leaves, stems, and developing seed pods are a pale, yellow-green color a single recessive gene (ygr), homozygous (ygr/ygr) the plants appear to be a yellow green color purple color is caused by the presence of anthocyanin : stems, leaf tips protecting cells from high-light damage by absorbing blue-green and ultraviolet light, thereby protecting the tissues from photoinhibition, or high-light stress intensity of the purple color is affected by the environment
