Given this goal (and an inability to wait several years for trees to grow before you get some data), where in each of the two apices shown below would you need to verify the presence (or expression) of the inserted genes? Locate and identify the target (primary) meristematic cells. Also, to justify each of your two answers, I suggest that you create a flow diagram, with arrows linking the progression in production and development of cell types from meristem to outer bark.
