    information, he went on to explain how he studies the conditions plant’s grow. He has to understand how to have the “plants grow healthier by using the luciferase imaging in the gene expressions” and the type of reactions they have to certain situations (Shi). Trying to understand abiotic stress response in plant’s research is rather challenging yet necessary. This topic caught my attention because it started off examining plants then gradually building a relationship to human beings after…
