In Support of Trichome Selection

Hello Fast Plants Colleagues,In support of those of you attempting the Artificial Selection lab, selecting for trichome density, we’ve compiled the following in the hopes that it may assist you.Please check out the photos and especially the PDF for tips on identifying trichomes (hairs), ways to count them (including a method utilizing free, easy-to-use ImageJ software). Please comment if you’d like clarification or more information on anything!…See More

The Long-Awaited Results

Refresher on the Experiment: Standard Fast Plants were planted in quads (128 plants total) and data was taken approximately every 2 days on the plants' heights. Prior to the day of flowering, the top 15% of the tallest plants were chosen to be inter-mated, and the other 85% of plants were discarded. The top 15% of tall plants were mated and allowed to set seed. The Offspring generation was planted from those seeds. Data was taken on the Offspring plants' heights in the same manner as for the…See More

Seeds of this stock are vigorous and have lots of genetic variation which we hoped would contribute to a wide degree of responses to salt stress. Finding the Salt ConcentrationFor this selection experiment, we used a different growing system than that of the previous Salt…See More

Artificial Selection Investigation

This group includes our Science House Interns: McKaylee, Jackson, and Cherie (pictured) who are growing out ~100 Standard Fast Plants and gathering data on this population that will be used to select for a particular trait with the goal of increasing the frequency of that trait in the next generation.See More
