  • Brassica Rapa Research Paper

    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…

  • Brassica Rapa Seeds

    An Investigation of the Effects of Cytokinins during the Germination of Brassica rapa Seeds Germination is a vital stage in a plants life, but it also plays a significant role in other animals’ (including humans) life cycle. It is the process in which a new plant grows from a seed. Due to the fact that plants are autotrophs; they use the process of photosynthesis to transform sunlight and make their own food. Germination occurs in gymnosperms and angiosperms when the seed is using its own…

  • Brassica Rapa Plants

    There was a variety of materials and steps to follow to ensure that the experiment was successful. The experiment was comprised of four main parts which included, planting the F1 generation seeds, pollinating the flowers, harvesting the seeds, and germinating the seeds. This process took about a total of 13 weeks for the Brassica Rapa Plants to complete their full life cycle (Figure 4). To begin, F1 Wisconsin Brassica Rapa fast plant hybrid generation seeds made from a cross between a homozygous…

  • Essay On Brassica Rapa

    The rapid-cycling Brassica rapa was developed by Dr. Paul Williams over a fifteen year period of using simple breeding techniques. These Brassica rapa plants develop remarkably quickly, flowering between thirteen and eighteen days after being planted. These plants are relatively small but need a continuous amount of water and cool white fluorescent lighting. Students in the botany lab were told to conduct experiments and to conduct research using the Brassica rapa. The purpose of the experiment…

  • Brassica Rapa Artificial Selection

    Introduction: Brassica Rapa comes from the family of Brassicaceae, also known as the mustard family; the genus Brassica L is known as mustard, and the species Brassica Rapa L is commonly known as field mustard (Plant Profile). There are several subspecies of Brassica Rapa, like a turnip, and they all have varying uses like oil and root production. We are using the Wisconsin Fast Plants that have artificially selected to be optimal for educational use. We are trying to increase the number of…

  • Brassica Hypothesis

    The genus Brassica contains thirty-seven different species, many of which provide edible parts such as roots, leaves, stems, buds, flowers, and seeds (Rakow, 2004). The Brassica species have provided much of the population 's diet, which explains their economic importance to many countries. Within the Brassica species, Canola has been a major contributor to the Canadian economy, providing over nineteen billion dollars each year, two-hundred and forty thousand Canadian jobs, and twelve and a half…

  • Soil Salinity Essay

    •Background and aim Soil salinity is one of the major environmental obstacles that limit the crop productivity. A pot experiment was conducted with an aim to explore the ameliorative effects of exogenously applied sodium nitroprusside (SNP) concentration against salinity stress in Brassica napus (L.) cv. Pactole. Methods Plants were grown under greenhouse conditions in plastic pots and were exposed to ***** mM NaCl. Further, ***** days old plants were sprayed with sodium nitroprusside (SNP,…

  • What Are Evolutionary Forces Affecting Genetic Variation?

    potential to interbreed (Richards et al., 2016). In our study, we have investigated on the effect of selection forces on Brassica rapa. Brassica rapa is a self-incompatible annual or biennial plant, which is used in agriculture (Agren and Schemske, 1992). Moreover, B. rapa display a substantial variety in trichome production (Williams and Hill, 1986). Trichomes are hair-like structures that are found on the surface of many plant populations (Werker, 2000). They are usually located where…

  • Limiting Factor Analysis

    Their growth tolerance decreases as the salinity increases but only up to 10 ppt of salinity. There is almost no seed germination of the seed under salinity with 15 ppt. Zero germination rate is present under salinity having 20 ppt. CONCLUSION One of the most fundamental adaptations we can describe for an organism is its ability to cope with abiotic factors like temperature, pH and salinity. Rainbow fishes have very high tolerance to temperature since they have zero mortality rates when…

  • Brassica Rapa's Theory Of Inheritance

    These Wisconsin Fast plants are a member of the family Brassica, called Brassica Rapa. The Brassica, family consist of many commercially produced consumable goods, such as, greens, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts and turnips. The Brassica Rapa is native species commonly found throughout the continents of Europe and Asia. The seeds of the Brassica Rapa, were known for their disease resistance that commonly affected crops in the United States. In light of this, seedlings were brought and…
