is the organism of choice for basic research in plant biology. The genomic sequence of A. thaliana
with a rather small size of 125 Mb has been completed in the year 2000. Although it is not grown commercially, it is favored among scientists as it develops, reproduces, and responds to stress and disease in much the same way as many crop plants. Moreover, with a rapid life cycle, efficient transformation methods, and a large number of mutant lines, it offers important advantages for basic research in plant genetics and molecular biology.
Plant biologists have relied upon A. thaliana
to help them understand the genetics, physiology, development, and structure of plants in general. Therefore, A. thaliana
has become the number one model organism to investigate, e.g., how plants react to general environmental stresses such as darkness, pathogens, cold, drought, or salt, by orchestrating gene expression accordingly.Unique Advantages
