Transcript of Arabidopsis Project

Limitations and Errors:
Only sunlight day 25-27
Acid not applied set days apart
Only one pot for each type(WC, MC, WE, ME)
Different distances from light source
To improve:
Don't remove tray from shelf
Set a schedule for variable application and rotation of plants
Add more trials
Use a pipette to apply variable
Further Questions:
Why do mutants live longer but have less resistance to acid?
How long would it take the plants to die if exposed to a smaller amount of acid?
The Effect of Acid on the Growth of the

Day 26
Day 23
Day 28
Day 27
20 mL of acid with a pH of 2 was applied to the
plants twice a week
Acid does not kill plants: weakens leaves and roots, dissolves minerals in soil
AAD-L plants: smaller leaves, lighter, grows slowly, fewer flowers
Mutant plants: fewer leaves
Mutant control: longer lifespan
Experimental plants: fewer leaves at end

Day 24: all plants down except WE
Day 28: all plants up except WE
Wildtype control: highest overall average
*plants received only sunlight from days 25-27
Mutant plants: start smaller
Mutant control: longer lifespan
Experimental: smaller diameter at end
Wildtype control: highest overall average
Mutant experimental: lowest overall avg.
Wildtype plants: hill at day 22
*plants received only sunlight from days 25-27
Experimental: decrease at day 28
Control: increase at day 28
WC: dramatic decrease at day 41
WC: dramatic increase at day 34
Control: taller bolts
Experimental: no bolts at day 34
Mutant plants: same bolt date data
WC: split evenly between first two days
Wildtype: bolted sooner
WE: all bolted on the same day, but not tallest or fastest bolter
Mutants: possibly take longer to bolt
