Caption

Plant genetics. Macrophotograph of the flowers of a strain of Thale cress, Arabidopsis thaliana, a member of the Cruciferae (cabbage family). This small plant is widely used for genetics research, and by molecular biologists studying developmental processes in plants. A number of factors make A. thaliana an ideal subject: a short generation time (5 weeks); a high seed number per plant (10,000); a small genome (about one tenth the number of base pairs as wheat); a tendency to self-fertilization (which leads to genetic uniformity and stability); and a susceptibility to infection by Agrobacterium tumifaciens (which means that the plants can be genetically transformed by plasmids).
