Arabidopsis thaliana is a small flowering plant of mustard family, brassicaceae (Cruciferae). It is distributed throughout the world and was first reported in the sixteenth century by Johannes Thal. It has been used for over fifty years to study plant mutations and for classical genetic analysis. It is now being used as a model organism to study More...
