Nicotiana tabacum is a member of the Solanaceae, which includes several other vegetable plants like potato, tomato, eggplant and peppers. It is grown for its leaves which contain high levels of nicotine. It is an important experimental plant as it is easy to grow and manipulate in the laboratory. It is extensively used for gene expression studies. More...
