com)-- In 2005, Susan Lolle and colleagues from Purdue University published a paper in Nature, concluding that Arabidopsis thaliana plants do not obey the laws of Mendelian inheritance (the idea that all genes are inherited from their parents).
When study authors Anna Lisa Paul and Robert Ferl of UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences monitored images of small, white Arabidopsis thaliana seeds growing both on Earth and in nutrientrich gel in zero-gravity orbit, they found that both sets of seeds--exposed to the same temperature and environmental conditions--sprouted roots with identical, standard patterns of growth: waving and skewing.
In this volume in a series that focuses on themes of topical importance in plant science, a dozen chapters reflect the increasing number of recently identified molecular components essential to root development--particularly in regard to the experimental model of Arabidopsis thaliana (the 'fruit fly' of research on higher plants), whose genome has been sequenced.
Researchers used modern molecular techniques to introduce specific bacteria into an Arabidopsis thaliana plant, creating a chemical reaction that made the plant produce an organic polymer called polyhdroxybutyrate-co-polyhydroxyvalerate, or PHBV.
