Arabidopsis: Columbia (Col-0) Seed

Item # 177600

A widely used wild type seed, selected for its high fertility, vigor, and responsiveness to changes in photoperiod. Contains no visible genetic markers. A member of the Brassica family, Arabidopsis thaliana is a favorite research subject for plant molecular geneticists because of its remarkably small genome size (about 100,000 kB, with less than 25% repetitive sequences), ease of culture in the lab, short stature and life cycle, and amenability to genetic mapping studies and other techniques (such as transformation and gene cloning).

not enough seeds The description says it comes with 200 seeds...not even close. I can't comment on the quality of the seeds themselves, because there wasn't enough seeds to use them in our study. March 26, 2014
They are seeds These seeds have met my expectations as a grain substance that replicates itself into a larger structure also known as a plant. It is a good plant. Buy it. October 19, 2013
