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).
