Brassica rapa, better known as the Brassica campestris, which is part of the mustard family. It is originated from Europe, but is now found all around the world (Courteau, 2012). This plant can grow anywhere between 30 to 120 centimeters tall. The growth of a plant is controlled by the hormone of the plant. The hormone will send a chemical signal to the plant which allows it to grow. An example of a plant’s hormone is called gibberellin. Gibberellin (GA) is responsible for the growth and the development of the plants and it’s actually an acid. The role of the (GA) is the process of stem elongation and germination. The stem elongation will stack the cells on top of each other causing the plant to grow. In this experiment, two different strains of the same species of plant will be tested with gibberellin and without it to see the rate at which the height of the plant increases. Wild-type and rosette will be used and the difference between them is that the rosette is a dwarf version and the wild-type is a normal growing version. Wild-type will grow with water, but if gibberellin is added then its height will increase much faster than with water only. Rosette will grow with water but if gibberellin is added then it will increase faster and higher than with only water. Methods and Materials
By using a quad, each cell was written down for wild type control and the other with (GA). The other side of the quad will have the rosette side on it. At the bottom of the quad, the tip of…
