How are the repetitive circular DNA sequences present on chloroplasts created? Jeong, Jaehoon.. Yeungnam University, 25 Jul 2022. Experiment. doi: 10.18258/28385
Our research team is going to analysis nucleic acid informations in chloroplasts of target plants. In this analysis, we are going to use PCR, Electrophoresis, etc. After this analysis, we are going to figure out more exact mechanisms of how IR sequence is made, and the relationship between IR sequence and deciduousness and the presence of rhizobium.
1. Sampling the target plants
Our research team is going to process sampling on Senegalia senegal and its 5 sister group species first.
- *For who doesn't know what 'sampling' means* :
What is a sampling in biology?
Sampling is a way of getting a quantitative (numerical) measurement which is an estimate of the actual number. It involves finding the average number of organisms of a species in a particular area and then multiplying this by the total area being studied.
2. Searching other academic papers
- It's almost obligatory for most of researchers to find another research papers published before, related to their research subject.
